A SNEAKY fuel thief is targeting Barnsley streets by drilling through people's fuel tanks and stealing their petrol.

Residents on Barnsbridge Close say around six cars were targeted in one evening.

One woman was woke by the sound of a drill at around 2am on Monday (May 18), and saw a man behaving suspiciously.

The following morning she found the fuel tank on her car had been drilled and petrol drained. A number of other cars on the car park had also been targeted in the same way.

The man seen behaving suspiciously was described as slim, not very tall and wearing dark clothing with the hood up.

If you have any information about the incident call police on 101 quoting incident number 64 of 18 May 2015.

Surely the car park on the top of the road has possible cctv footage of them coming out of the estate. Or maybe the cctv on Cemetery Road if they went the other direct. Surely there is cctv in the park too.

Either way they went there should be a trace. if not is maybe narrows the search down the estate near the sandwich shop. maybe they even have cctv?

The car wash does have CCTV, lots of it as seen from the waiting area.
