Charity organisation Drought Angels are calling for truckies to be on the lookout for a 2015 Isuzu F Series truck that was stolen from its Logan warehouse in Brisbane at the weekend.

The Strategix Training Truck was loaded with $250,000 worth of donations intended for Queensland farmers in need, including those who have recently lost their homes in the Tara bushfires.

“Strategix has volunteered the use of their truck to Drought Angels for nine years,” the charity wrote on its Facebook page.

“Please help us share this post far and wide and hopefully get their vehicle back with all the donations inside. REGO 620WBD.”

Police say the Isuzu was stolen from the property on Cairns St in the early morning hours on December 3, with initial investigations indicating it was taken between 12.30am and 4.30am.

It is unknown how many persons were involved, but security footage shows what appears to be three thieves breaking into the warehouse and driving away.

Drought Angels volunteer Ian Stanley told 9 News that he cried when he learned of the robbery.

He said some of the goods inside were intended to go to bushfire victims in Central Queensland, including those who had lost their homes in Tara.

“It’s devastating, it really is,” he said. “I’ve been crying all morning.”

Stanley said he was surprised that the thieves appeared to have knowledge of the warehouse security system and the location of the spare truck keys.

“I’d just like to say to these people that took it, you know, have a heart guys.”
