A Toyota Landcruiser ute stolen from a Holbrook property is the latest clue in the search for Gino and Mark Stocco.
Police believe the vehicle parked on the Four Mile Lane property, Little Billabong, about 18km north of Holbrook, was stolen by the country’s most wanted duo between 7pm Sunday and 8am Monday.
The vehicle is described as a 2013 white Toyota Landcruiser with distinctive white bull bars, with a 145l fuel tank and NSW registration plates BV70WP.
An investigation has been launched and officers believe that two men, Gino and Mark Stocco, a father and son from Queensland, may have possession of the vehicle. They are currently wanted in a number of Australian states for a range of alleged criminal offences.
Investigators are appealing for people to keep vigilant and report any fuel theft or sightings of the distinctive Toyota Landcruiser, that maybe displaying different registration plates.
The duo allegedly fired shots at police from a Nissan Navara after they tried to pull them over on a dirt lane off the Henty Road just after 2pm Friday.
Another shot was fired on Cheviot Hills Road after two high-speed police pursuits.
The Nissan Navara was found abandoned in Kyeamba Creek on Friday night, triggering police to advise nearby residents to leave their properties as the armed men were on on foot.
Police are warning the public to contact triple-0 immediately if they see the two men or the ute.
