Police are calling for information following the brazen theft of a car from the Maryborough Golf Club last week.
The incident occurred last Monday and Maryborough Police Acting Sergeant Richard Jane said opportunistic offender/s made off with the vehicle at around 6 pm.
“A person has parked their vehicle at the golf club and gone to the rear of the car to take out their golf clubs, and in doing so have dropped their keys, not realised and gone off to play a round of golf,” he said.
“We believe the offender/s have driven past as the keys have fallen onto the ground and saw that. They’ve then returned about half an hour later and stolen the vehicle with the keys.
“When the owner of the vehicle came back they realised the keys were no longer in their pocket and the car was missing.”
Act Sgt Jane said the number of offenders involved in the incident is unknown and urged anyone with information to contact police.
“The stolen vehicle is a red 2013 Holden Commodore VF Sedan and the registration displayed at the time was AAD 756,” he said.
“Police are looking to speak to the occupants of a silver late model Mazda 6 with dents down the passenger side who may be able to assist police with their inquiries.”
Anyone with information should contact Maryborough Police on 5460-3300 or Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.
