Police are seeking information after a theft in a quiet Oamaru street last Friday afternoon.

A police spokeswoman said a boat and trailer were stolen from a Hannah Pl address in the Holmes Hill area, between 12pm and 4pm.

The 5.09m-long stainless steel Stabicraft vessel was mounted on a trailer and parked in the driveway of the residential property when a blue, signwritten ute reversed up the driveway.

The trailer was then hooked up to the ute, before being driven away.

It is not known how many people were involved in the theft.

A ute involved in the theft was believed to have had the word “fire” painted on its side, the spokeswoman said.

The boat has “Cod Squad” written on each side, accompanied by a cartoon fish.

Police want to speak to anyone who may have seen the boat and trailer, registration number A512K, since the alleged theft.

Inquiries are continuing.
