Theft of Fuel

Alert message sent 02/02/2018 16:38:00

Information sent on behalf of Notts Police

****Theft of Fuel****

Please be aware that between 23rd January and 2nd February 2018 we have taken five reports of fuel tanks being drilled and fuel drained off in the following locations:

Templeman Close, Ruddington

Linksfield Court, West Bridgford

Lansdowne Drive, West Bridgford

Loughborough Road, West Bridgford

Boxley Drive, West Bridgford

Vehicles currently targeted have been a Vauxhall Zafira, Fiat 500, Nissan Note, Ford Focus and a Nissan Qashqai.

All victims report this has taken place overnight.

It is likely that this is not a quick job for the offenders; whereby having to drill your tank and place containers underneath to collect the fuel as it drains, before returning to collect the containers.

If you hear any noises outside, or your security light illuminates, please look out your window to see what has caused this, checking that nobody is near or under your vehicle.

If you have any information as to who is responsible, please call us on 101 quoting incident 000570-02022018 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111

Thank you
