A Millers Falls branded 40 tonne log splitter was stolen from the front yard of a Tatura East property overnight on Wednesday, May 16.
The theft occurred after the front fencing of the property was cut, allowing a vehicle to drive to the log splitter and tow it off the property.
The incident comes after a red coloured 40 tonne wood splitter was stolen from Hogan St, Tatura earlier in the month.
Anyone who has seen a similar wood splitter in suspicious circumstances is urged to contact Senior Constable Aitken at the Tatura Police Station on 5824 3099.
