Two Nyngan men and a woman accused of stealing from emergency depots in the state's west have pleaded not guilty at Nyngan Local Court on Monday.
It is alleged between 1.30am and 3am on Sunday, July 21, the men and woman aged in their early 20s, have forced entry to a depot at Girilambone, stealing tools, a defibrillator and fuel from a primary response vehicle.
It is alleged they then attended a second depot at Coolabah where they forced entry and stole a number of similar items, before attempting to steal a Toyota Hilux.
It is believed they fled the scene in a stolen vehicle when disrupted by residents.
Officers attached to Central North Police District were alerted to the incident and located the two men and a woman in a vehicle on the outskirts of Coolabah.
They were arrested and taken to Nyngan Police Station where they were charged with two counts of break, enter and steal.
One man was also charged with driving whilst never licensed.
The men were refused bail.
All three pleaded not guilty in court on Monday.
The case was adjourned and will reappear at Nyngan Local Court on August 26.
