Windsor RCMP are looking for thieves who made off with 70 propane tanks from an Irving parking lot.

Const. Terry Fogarty said the theft happened sometime between 10 p.m. on Thursday and 6 a.m. on Friday from the Irving parking lot in Mount Uniacke, off Highway 1.

"Someone would have to be travelling in, it would've been either a large truck or a large trailer being pulled by a three-quarter ton truck or something because there's a significant amount of weight involved here," Fogarty told CBC News.

"Any information from the public, however insignificant it may seem to them, could be extremely useful to us."

The barbecue-sized tanks were locked in a cage next to the service station, said Fogarty.

RCMP are working with the service station to find out if there is any video surveillance footage.
