The following is a local policing update for the Rural Flegg Villages neighbourhood
Weekly crime summary 13 December 2016
Police are urging home owners and businesses to review and check the security of their fuel oil tanks as this is the time of year when fuel thieves become more active as tanks are topped up for the winter. Introducing some basic security measures can help to prevent you from becoming a victim of this type of crime.
Thieves often make use of the longer hours of darkness to avoid detection, so we encourage you to:
- Check & record your tank levels and keep the tank securely locked against opportunists
- Keep your tank unobstructed and in view of the house or business where you can plainly see anyone who shouldn’t be there
- Consider protecting the tank with security lighting to deter attack at night, permitting you to identify suspicious activity early
- Consider fitting a Secured by Design, Police Approved fuel alarm to protect your tank and its valuable contents
- Keep a watch out for your neighbours if they too have a fuel tank. The more eyes watching the better to deter or identify the thief
- Remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity. If you think persons are in the act of stealing then call the Police immediately on 999
