Share Canberra's trusted news:

ACT Policing is seeking assistance to identify three offenders following a vehicle theft and property damage earlier this week (1-5 May).

It is alleged the offenders stole a 2015 white Ford Ranger on Sunday (1 May) at around 11pm from a driveway in Curtin. They later covered the business insignia on both front doors in blue paint.

On 4 May around 9pm, they used the car to drive through McDonalds Erindale. Shortly after, the offenders have attempted to cover the blue paint white, leaving a blue tinge on both doors.

At around 11.50pm that same night, the offenders conducted a petrol drive off at the Caltex Service Station in Hume. Approximately two hours later, they drove to Calwell shops and attempted to ram a dog wash facility causing considerable damage.

All three offenders are described as Caucasian. One offender is described as female, short, aged in her teens with dyed blonde hair, wearing a grey hooded jumper.

One man is described as tall with a slim build, wearing a black hooded jumper with white insignia on the front, dark grey track pants, and black and orange Nike sneakers.

The third is described as male with short brown hair.

The car has now been located, but police are seeking information from anyone who recalls seeing the vehicle or has any information relating to the offenders.

If you have information that could assist police, contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via Please quote reference 5956914. Information can be provided anonymously.

Police remind people they should not report crime information via Facebook and Twitter pages.
