In what can only be described as a dirty deed, two Dunedin car thieves have made off with septic truck.

But despite the words "Barry Dell Plumbing" emblazoned on the blue and yellow truck's side, police have been unable to find the culprits for two days now.

It had been sighted multiple times heading north on SH1 towards Christchurch today – but it is still unclear why the truck was stolen or what the thieves intended to do with it.

Police have now issued a photo and are asking for information about two men seen in the Octagon at about 5:30am yesterday.
