About 7pm on Friday (12 July) night, a white Isuzu tipper truck was secured on Blizzard Street. Attached to the truck was a grey tandem-trailer, on top of which was an orange Caterpillar excavator. Parked next to the truck was a Caterpillar Bobcat.

Around 10.30am Sunday (14 July) morning the owner returned to find all four vehicles missing. A number of tools stored within the vehicles were also stolen.

The value of the stolen vehicles is estimated to be around $100,000.
