Echuca police are concerned about a cylinder of potentially dangerous gas that has been stolen over the New Year period.
Senior Constable Paul Kervin said the 68 kg cylinder of phosphine gas was stolen from a McMillan Rd business in Echuca's industrial area sometime between 5pm on New Year's Eve and 8am today.
"It's a pretty dangerous gas."
Sen Const Kervin said he's hoping to alert people to the disappearance and to alert the thieves they may not know what they're dealing with.
The gas is understood to be colourless and toxic.
It is known to kill weevils and can be lethal to humans. It can also cause nausea.
Sen Const Kervin said the gas also has a stong smell of garlic or dead fish.
If you can help or you've seen the missing cylinder, contact Echuca Police on 5482 2255
