Police are seeking public assistance to locate a man who they believe may be able to assist them in relation to a number of fraud offences in Queensland.
The man has targeted seven tyre or tobacco businesses in Queensland, including here in Toowoomba.
The man contacts the business in person or over the phone pretending to be a tyre or cigarette wholesaler. He then attends the business to receive payment in cash and sometimes has arranged for the items to be delivered by a legitimate wholesaler at the same time. He leaves the business with the cash payment whilst the items are unloaded.
He is described as having an olive complexion, 177cm tall with brown hair and a large build. He speaks with a slight accent. He is believed to be currently travelling in a white corolla although he has used other cars.
