Police are seeking help to find a vehicle stolen from Wellesley this morning.

Officers are searching for a white 2003 Nissan Patrol with the registration 1CQX 295.

It is believed the vehicle was stolen from a firefighter who was responding to a blaze in the area.

Sen. Sgt Mark Smith, from Australind police, described the theft as a “low act”.

“The people who do this type of thing are parasites,” Sen. Sgt Smith said.

“They’ve preyed on the people who are out there trying to make us safe.”
