Police divers this week recovered a stolen utility dumped in a popular swimming and fishing hole east of Warwick.
A Police Media statement said divers from Brisbane attended the waterhole known as ‘The Rockies’ – also known as ‘Carr’s Crossing’ – on Emu Creek on Wednesday, 7 November.
The search of the waterhole followed information from the public that a reported stolen car had been dumped at the location.
“Divers searched a section of Emu Creek known as ‘The Rockies’ and located a Toyota utility that was confirmed to have been reported stolen from Rose Bud Court in Warwick on Wednesday 8 August this year,” the statement said.
“The vehicle was located under a popular jump off point and could have potentially cause a hazard for those using the swimming spot.
“Those responsible have demonstrated they have complete disregard for the safety of anyone swimming or the environment they have polluted with fuel and oil.
“Police urge anyone with information about this incident to contact Policelink on 131 444 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
“Police would particularly like the author of an anonymous letter delivered to the Warwick Station regarding this matter, to make contact with police.”
