Oil & Diesel Theft

Alex sent me an email from the Neighbourhood Watch Scheme to let us know that there had been an incident of oil theft for a co-ordinator of the East Riding Neighbourhood Watch Scheme and to be aware of this.

A leaflet from the East Riding Of Yorkshire Council says,

"Theft of heating and diesel oil has been a problem for many years and the police have noticed an increase in this type of crime whenever the price of crude oil rises. A rise in the price of fuel at the petrol pump inevitably leads to a rise in the cost of heating oil. This makes oil a more attractive proposition for the thief and they are now actively targeting fuel tanks at farms, transport depots and domestic properties."
