A heartless crook has stolen a car belonging to a local children's charity.
The Bravehearts vehicle was nabbed from the charity's headquarters on Byth St in Arundel around 6:40 on Tuesday night, when a worker got out and left the Mitsubishi ASX idling while locking the gate.
"No more than a minute later, some guy has jumped in the car and taken off," said a shaken Dan from Corporate Services.
The charity has posted a picture of the car on Facebook in an attempt to find the valuable asset.
"How low can one go? Stealing a car from a children's charity! Had the peevish pilferer asked, we would have given him a lift", the post stated.
The 4WD has Queensland Registration 591 WAQ.
Anyone who spots it should call the police.
