Warning after heating oil thefts

Have your say

Businesses and householders are being warned to be on their guard after thefts of heating oil were reported

Sometime over the last two weeks offenders have drained a heating oil tank at a property in West Street Folkingham, near Sleaford.

This follows a similar incident between 6pm on Sunday (February 10) and the morning on Monday (February 11) at Grantham Truck Services at Tollmache Road South in Grantham.

Offenders got into the yard and stole 900 litres of heating oil from a tank. They would have used a vehicle that was either parked in Gorse Lane, or in a lay-by on the A1 Southbound.

Police are appealing for anyone with any information on either incident to get in touch with them via the non emergency 101 number as soon as possible.

Officers are also urging residents and businesses with heating oil tanks to look at ways of improving their security. For more information click here
