Fuel stolen from lorries as driver slept
12:50pm Monday 21st October 2013 in Crime
THIEVES stole hundreds of litres of fuel from two lorries while the drivers were asleep.
Around 450 litres of diesel was removed from two trucks overnight on Tuesday, October 15.
One of the lorries was parked at a lay-by at South Wonston on the A34, and the other at nearby Sutton Scotney services.
Officers are to visit lorry park-up areas to offer advice, such as always parking in a well lit, well used area, or parking with the fuel tank facing the road.
Inspector Jon Turton, of Winchester Police Station, said: “We hope that by working together with lorry drivers we can make life harder for those who are considering stealing diesel from vehicles in the area.”
