A ute stolen in Deniliquin may be linked to a wanted South Australian couple involved in a Deniliquin crime spree.By Zoe McMaugh
A ute stolen from Deniliquin last Friday has been found in South Australia.
Deniliquin Police say an alleged crime spree which started in South Australia and then spread to Victoria and NSW (Deniliquin) may be linked to the stolen ute, which was taken from a south-east Deniliquin home.
Police are still searching for a couple — a man and his pregnant partner — they would like to speak to in relation to the crime spree.
They were last seen in Deniliquin last week with three children with them, including one young enough to be in a pram.
The Deniliquin ute was found abandoned in the north Adelaide suburb of Salisbury.
The vehicle was alerted to South Australian police about 10.30am on Wednesday but is believed to have been parked where it was found since Monday.
Both the man and the woman have been identified as South Australian residents who are are known to police.
Deniliquin Police last week released CCTV images of the pair in the hope of receiving information from the public as to their whereabouts.
The ute was stolen from the Deniliquin home the same day the images were published on the front page of the Pastoral Times.
The images were taken from CCTV at a Deniliquin supermarket where the couple allegedly used a stolen credit card.
The docket for the supermarket purchase and the woman’s driver’s licence were found in a vacant caravan off the Riverina Hwy at Deniliquin, where the couple and the children were believed to have been staying without permission.
The pair are accused of using the credit card at businesses in Victoria, before travelling to Deniliquin.
They are also alleged to have been involved in a car crash on the Riverina Hwy last Tuesday.
They were allegedly driving a car stolen from South Australia, which was later found in bushland on Aratula Rd.
Police say it is also possible the pair are responsible for the break-in of a Riverina Hwy home in Deniliquin, where a laptop and phone were among the items stolen.
