Police searching for turf thief after lawn disappears in the dead of night

Police seek dirt on thief who stole garden and construction materials

Moreton Bay police are seeking any dirt residents might have on a thief who allegedly made off with eight square metres of newly laid turf at Narangba.

It is believed the alleged offender visited the Elite Crescent address between 9pm on January 9 and 7.30am on January 10.

A man was seen near the address on the night, and is described as approximately 6ft tall, with a slim build, and wearing a hooded sweatshirt.

Police are also hoping residents may be able to assist in their investigation of several other building site and house-under-construction type offences across the Moreton Bay District.

A hire utility similar to the one pictured below was seen in the area around the time of some of the offences.
