A series of thefts of heavy equipment machinery in the Karratha LIA have prompted police to ask the public for help in identifying the offenders.

In four separate incidents between Saturday, January 21 and Tuesday, April 4 this year, a bobcat or skid steer was taken from premises at the LIA.

Karratha police have recovered the stolen machinery but are still investigating the incidents and believe they may be linked.

They have asked the public for help identifying the truck in a series of CCTV stills, pictured, and its occupants, who they believe may be able to assist with the investigation.
