Coolup Roadhouse on the hunt for fuel thieves

The owners of Placid Ark Roadhouse in Coolup have taken to social media to catch fuel thieves, after a number of thefts this month.

The owners have published photos and video on their Placid Ark Roadhouse – Coolup page of people they allege have taken off after filling up.

“We had a run of Fuel thefts in November and December last year, and it looks like it's happening again,” the post said.

“We have a lot of good young blokes around here who enjoy their pigging, so we hope someone can identify this vehicle or driver.”

The latest CCTV footage shows a driver of a flatbed ute filling up before driving off without paying.

“Unfortunately staff didn't notice that there were no number plates on the vehicle,” the post said. 

“The driver pumped $80.01 of unleaded into his vehicle and drove away. This incident has been reported to Police and if located, he will be charged.”

Anyone with informaiton is asked to call Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.
