Bunbury police are today continuing their investigation into the theft of a car that was engulfed in flames on a beach last week.

A 2013 Toyota LandCruiser going up in flames was captured on camera at Mindalong Beach on the morning of July 6.

Officer-in-charge Sen. Sgt Mal Jones said the car had been stolen the previous day from a property in Stratham.

He said sometime between 7am and 5.30pm thieves stole the vehicle, keys and a girl’s mountain bike from the home.

The car – which was recovered from the beach on Friday – had been re-fitted with number plates stolen from Bunbury Toyota.

Sen. Sgt Jones said police had identified some suspects and investigations were continuing.
