Police Still Trying To Catch Boat Fuel Thief
There have been more reports of fuel theft from St Mary’s Harbour this week.
It was stolen from two commercial vessels sometime over the last 2 days. 13 incidents have now been recorded over a 2-month period.
Nearly all the fuel theft has been on St Mary’s with one reported incident on St Martin’s.
Sergeant Colin Taylor says that his team have now altered their shift patterns to try and find the people who have been doing this.
Officers are patrolling the harbour into the early hours of the morning and aren’t necessarily wearing uniforms, so their presence is not so noticeable he says.
