2m long and a metre high: why on earth would you steal it?

MORE than 2.5m long, a metre high and painted with turtles, you cannot imagine a wheelie bin enclosure vanishing into thin air.

That is what happened just north of Gympie recently.

Police have called for information on the whereabouts of the distinctive enclosure after it was stolen more than a month ago near Bells Bridge.
