Police are appealing for public assistance in relation to a number of fuel stealing offences on the Sunshine Coast and Caboolture since February this year.

Shortly before 11.30pm on May 25, a man refuelled a black Holden Barina at a service station on Steve Irwin Way in Glenview but left without paying.

The same car, bearing a series of false number plates, is believed to have been involved in more than 20 similar incidents around the Sunshine Coast and Caboolture.
