Police are investigating the theft of a cash teller machine from the Kingaroy Car and Dog Wash in Rogers Drive in the early hours of Thursday morning.
CCTV captured the two thieves wrapping a chain around the machine, which was bolted into concrete, at 2:56am.
Then – after several failed attempts – they drove off with the machine dragging behind them.
The pair, wearing masks and hoodies, were driving a dual-cab Toyota HiLux with a metal tray.
One was wearing work pants with fluoro strips on the legs.
Kingaroy Car and Dog Wash owner Richard Mason told southburnett.com.au he believed the number plates on the vehicle were stolen.
Officer-in-charge of Kingaroy Police, Senior Sergeant David Tierney, said police were following up several leads.
This is the third time in two years that the business has been targeted.
Mr Mason said he had just spent $250,000 upgrading one of the wash bays at the facility in time for Easter.
“It’s new equipment, the best in the world,” he said.
“And now this happens.”
