A VEHICLE, tools and expensive electrical equipment have been stolen from the work site of a major wind farm on Queensland’s Western Downs, in what some believe to have been an ‘inside job’.

Local police and scenes of crime experts have spent the morning at the site of the Dulacca Wind Farm near Miles investigating an overnight robbery in which a ute, computers and various work tools were taken.

The Caller has been told intruders spray painted security cameras and disconnected the CCTV system to avoid detection, breaking open locks on doors, gates and shipping containers used to store equipment.

A source told the Caller they believed the robbery was potentially carried out with prior knowledge of the site.

“They knew what they were doing,” the source said.

The vehicle stolen was a white Toyota Hilux dual cab ute with South Australian registration plates S147-CDO.

The ute has distinctive business markings – ‘RJE’ with asset number LV-91 on the doors and rear tray of the vehicle.

Police are appealing to anyone who see this vehicle, or anyone who has any information in relation to its whereabouts, to not approach the occupants but contact Police.
