Two men have been charged, accused of stealing thousands of litres of fuel in Moranbah.
An investigation started on Monday, after a Moranbah mine site reported thousands of litres of diesel had been stolen.
Inquiries led police to a paddock, where officers say they found two men pumping fuel from a vehicle into a shed.
A crime scene was declared and officers located 7,500 litres of diesel, stored in fuel pods, along with $7,000 in cash.
It is alleged the fuel had been stolen between approximately October 3 and November 7.
Two cameras and two phones were also seized, in which it is alleged evidence was located that indicated the pair were attempting to onsell the fuel.
A 40-year-old Proserpine man and 48-year-old Moranbah man were taken into custody at the scene.
The 40-year-old man has been charged with seven counts of stealing and one count of possessing tainted property.
The 48-year-old man has been charged with six counts of stealing and one count each of receiving tainted property and possessing explosives (fireworks).
Both men are expected to appear before Moranbah Magistrates Court on December 8.
