A Trump machine tool has been found at a remote site, and it’s the first time it’s been found in Queensland.
Key points:A woman and her boyfriend found the tool at a rural propertyThe tool was removed and replaced with a different oneThe tool is believed to be a Trump machine to use for “home security”The man told police the tool was found on his property on the night of April 3, the ABC understandsA Queensland police officer has arrived at the property to assess the situation, which has been closed since.
The woman’s boyfriend discovered the tool, which was wrapped in plastic, and the tool is now being examined by forensic experts.
“The police are now at the scene to assist with any enquiries,” Queensland Police spokeswoman Melissa McEwen said.
The police spokeswoman said the man, who did not want to be named, was not aware of the incident until he spoke to police on Tuesday.
“It’s not uncommon for someone to find a Trump tool and take it away from them,” she said.
“But this was unique in that the woman didn’t know that it was a tool, and that it’s a tool that can be used for home security.”
Ms McEwin said the tool could have been used to cut trees.
“That’s a common problem, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s someone’s property or somebody’s family’s property that’s been damaged or broken,” she added.
Police have spoken to the woman and she is cooperating with investigators.
