$1m Sydney silver bullion heist: CCTV footage released in hope of cracking case

NSW Police believe footage of a Toyota Landcruiser ute may be the answer in finding a theft who allegedly stole $1 million worth of silver bullion from a truck last year.

In November 2021, a consignment of silver was allegedly stolen while in transit from Sydney’s south-west to Melbourne.

The theft of the silver bars, which were being transported by a Kenworth truck and silver Krueger trailer, was only discovered upon arrival to Melbourne. The consignment – 192 individual 5kg bars – has an estimated value of $1,015,000.

Police have now released CCTV footage of a vehicle of interest, a dark-coloured ute, which was seen travelling on Argyle St in Picton about 12.20am on November 28.

Police have also renewed their appeal for information and are urging anyone who may have information about the vehicle to come forward.
