Fuel thefts ‘coincidence’
Monday, 13th May, 2013
Two incidents where petrol was stolen from the Woolworths Petrol Station within half an hour on Friday appear to be unrelated.
According to police, a driver drove off without paying after pumping $45 worth of fuel.
Shortly after, another driver allegedly stole $78 worth from the same station.
The cars were not caught out by CCTV cameras because of the angle they were parked, police said.
A spokesman said that the description of the cars is “extremely vague” and police are not hopeful for witnesses as it was “very busy and people usually mind their own business.”
The spokesman said that while it was unusual for two thefts in such a short space of time, the incidents appeared to be unrelated.
“We don’t usually have a lot of petrol theft here, it is usually more of the accidental type where people forget to pay.
“It’s something that happens more in the capital cities.”
Anyone who takes fuel without paying faces a $250 infringement notice on the spot.
The person could also be charged with stealing.
