Police Investigate As Fuel Thieves Strike

Thursday December 5 2013

POLICE are investigating after more than £1,000 worth of diesel was stolen from areas in Barnsley.

Thieves have struck at both business premises and private vehicles during the past few days.

Offenders climbed the perimeter fence of a company at Lund Lane, Lundwood, overnight on December 1/2 to siphon fuel from vehicles in a shed at the compound.

The same company was targeted at 9.45pm the day after when diesel from a tractor and tanker was stolen.

In total £1,000 worth of fuel was taken.

Another firm was hit at 11.15pm on December 2 when thieves took £50 worth of diesel from a vehicle at a compound in Carrwood Road, Stairfoot.

Police, who believe the incidents are linked, are studying CCTV footage of the last theft. Crime prevention officers are also due to visit both companies.

We too have been hit 4 times in the last month I now have put security on at the yard 7 days! I would not mind but we don't leave hardly any fuel in overnight

It's not just fuel, it's spare wheels underneath my vehicle.. They keep nicking it. Brand new tyres. Not fair
