DJI Drone sample image, not the actual stolen item
by Senior Constable Deb Wruck
Ok… So who took it?
That is the question that the owner/victim was asking themselves when they returned back to their vehicle to find the drone and its equipment stolen!
On Thursday March 9, between 3.30pm and 4pm the victim’s vehicle which is a white Hyundai IMAX station wagon had been parked at a popular Rainbow Beach car park on Wide Bay Esplanade when offender/s have approached the vehicle, opened the doors and stole a white DJI Drone including the remote control unit, battery pack and carry bag.
The drone had been filming footage from Fraser Island, Sunshine Coast and Brisbane. Police are continuing their investigations but are appealing to anyone who may have seen anything unusual or knows of the drone to please report it to police or Crime Stoppers.
