Police warning over heating oil thefts
POLICE in Cornwall are urging homeowners and businesses to be aware of heating oil thefts.
In the last seven days, between March 8 and 15, the force have received 14 complaints from across the two counties where quantities of between 100 and 750 litres of oil have been stolen. 11 of those reports have been in Cornwall.
A police spokesman said oil is frequently stored in rural areas and can be difficult to protect.
But owners can make life more difficult for any would be thief by fitting good quality locks to the tanks and secure any gates on the approach to make access difficult.
