Warrnambool police detectives are seeking information from the public after a wood heater was stolen from a Dennington home.
Detective Acting Sergeant Wayne Ryan, of the Warrnambool police crime investigation unit, said that between Thursday last week and last Sunday morning offenders entered a Dennington home on Raglan Parade.
The home was unoccupied at the time of the theft.
"When the new owner arrived the door was open and a free standing wood heater, a Coonara brand or similar, had been removed from the property," he said.
"It's not known if the door to the home was forced open or left open.
"The offenders would have had to use a station wagon, ute or a trailer to take the heater and it would have required two people to lift the heater.
"We would request that any scrap metal merchants keep an eye out for the heater."
Detective Acting Sergeant Ryan asked that anyone with information about the wood heater theft contact the Warrnambool police station or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
