DETECTIVES are hunting the driver of a utility who used his vehicle in a suspected ram raid attempt on a Karalee home.
Security cameras positioned outside the Katherine Ct house showed the white Ford Courier ute reversing down the steep driveway about 12.30pm.
The ute's solid steel tray was then used as a battering ram, smashing a timber shade out the way and breaking a large window next to the house's front door.
Police said the driver of the vehicle then got out and approached the broken window, but returned to the vehicle and sped off after noticing that a security alarm had been activated.
No property was stolen during the attempted raid.
The vehicle was described as an older model extra-cab Ford Courier with a black bull bar and distinctive red-coloured flat bed tray.
The television images also show what is thought to be a trolley secured to the back of the ute. Police said the registration of the vehicle was unknown.
Anyone with information that could assist police should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
