'Miss Daisy' tip truck stolen

LEFT out of pocket after having “Miss Daisy” stolen, Golden City Brick and Landscape owner Phil Sparks is appealing for information.

“Miss Daisy” is a Hino two metre tip truck and was stolen last Thursday night, so far Gympie Police have no suspects.

Acting Officer in Charge of the Gympie Criminal Investigation Branch Dion Southey said a state-wide bulletin had been put out on the vehicle and he hoped to get it back in one piece for Mr Sparks.

The offender/s somehow gained entry to the landscaping yard and drove the truck out, straight through a fence.

Now Mr Sparks is borrowing a truck until the investigation is over, but he hopes the vehicle will be recovered as it wasn’t insured enough to cover the cost of a replacement.

Mr Sparks only recently started at Golden City and said he thought it was a “low act”.

The tip truck was sign written with the Golden City logo and Mr Sparks is hoping anyone who may know anything about its disappearance will come forward.

Call Gympie Police on 5480 1111 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 1800 333 000.
