Police trying to reunite stolen tools with Gold Coast owners

Police are looking to reunite stolen power tools with their Gold Coast owners.

Last week, a large amount of nail guns and other tools were handed to Runaway Bay police station by a man who had been selling tools bought from an online marketplace.

The man had been contacted by a person who saw the items for sale and claimed a number of them had been allegedly stolen from his work trailer earlier this month.


After investigations, a 35-year-old Southport man was charged with two counts of receiving tainted property and one count of enter premises and committing an indictable offence.

Police are urging anyone who has had tools stolen to contact them

Anyone in the Gold Coast area who has had tools stolen over the last year and may recognise the property as theirs is being urged to contact Police.
