Alleged prolific property offender in Brisbane, QLD

Brisbane detectives investigating a spate of recent property offences committed on Brisbane’s north and southside, have released images of a man who may be able to assist them with their investigations, Queensland Police say.

Detectives want to speak to 31-year-old, Mitchell Connor in relation to these investigations with police believing he may be in possession of a handgun and are urging members of the public not to approach him.

From early April, 2017 vehicles and personal property have been stolen from car parks and garages – many of which would be considered secure parking locations – in Norman Park, New Farm, Albion, Lutwyche, Nundah, Windsor, Spring Hill, Kelvin Grove, Northgate, West End and Coorparoo.

Similar offences have also occurred in Burleigh Heads and Southport.

Detectives are investigating in excess of 30 separate incidents with property stolen including motor vehicles, number plates, house keys, garage remote control, smart phones and motorbikes.

Mitchell Connor is described as Caucasian, with a solid build, light brown hair, and 187cms tall.

Detectives have released CCTV of a white Audi sedan stolen from the car park of an Annie Street, New Farm apartment complex on May 12.

Police allege two people drive into the car park in a previously stolen silver VW sedan, before breaking into one parked vehicle and stealing property, and then stealing the parked Audi. Both vehicles then exit the car park.

The silver VW sedan has since been located. The white Audi was later located in Spring Hill.

Detectives arrested a 27-year-old woman from Annerley on June 13, 2017 and charged her with 14 linked offences including unlawful use of motor vehicles, unlawful entry of secure carparks and stealing. She appeared in the Brisbane Magistrates Court yesterday and has been remanded in custody.

If anyone has any information in relation to Mitchell Connor or his current whereabouts they are urged to contact police and again reminded not to contact him but to immediately call Triple Zero (000).
