Detective Inspector Mark Thompson said the man and woman are believed to be staying at hotels and Airbnb outlets and are frequently on the move.

“It is very important to realise at this point and time that neither of these people have been charged with any offences, nor are police alleging they are directly involved in these offences,” he said.

“We believe that they may have information that could assist us with our enquiries and we ask the public to come forward if they have any information on these two people.”

Detective Insp Thompson said the couple are believed to be using the high-end vehicles to travel around.

“Whether they are aware of the origin of the vehicles is something that we need to establish,” he said.

Anyone who has seen the man and woman are urged not the approach them, but to call Triple Zero (000).
