PIC: Supplied

Police believe the vehicle involved in a fuel drive-off incident at Preston Beach is a stolen fire truck that's been stripped of its equipment and fluorescent signs.

Police are looking for two men captured on CCTV during an alleged fuel drive-off at a Preston Beach service station on Tuesday.

The marked Toyota Landcruiser ute carrying firefighting equipment was stolen from Springfield Volunteer Bushfire Brigade’s shed in Pemberton about 2am on Sunday.

The rear tray, which holds the firefighting equipment was located abandoned and damaged in bushland within the Greater Beedelup National Park. 

Acting Sergeant Kirk Hobson, Officer in Charge of Pemberton Police said this incident is devastating for the local community.

“We have a team of highly committed and dedicated volunteers who put themselves in harm’s way to protect the local community, and to see this happen to them is disappointing.

“Whoever stole the vehicle has put the local community at risk, and have a complete disregard for the safety of the community."

Anyone who recognises the persons pictured is asked to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report the information online at www.crimestopperswa.com.au
