Police are appealing for public assistance to help identify a serial petrol thief in Melbourne’s western suburbs.

Investigators believe the same woman has been involved in up to 24 petrol drive offs in Ardeer, Deer Park, Kealba, St Albans, Burnside, Ravenhall, Derrimut, Taylors Lakes, Melton, and Sunshine.

On each occasion the woman was driving a dark coloured older model Mitsubishi, possibly an Outlander, with false registration RYI757.

Investigators have released images of a woman who they believe can assist with their enquiries.

She is perceived to be Caucasian in appearance, aged between 25 and 35-years-old, with a stocky build, and long blonde hair which at times has been died pink.

Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au.
