Neighbourhood Bulletin – Red Diesel Theft

Overnight 13/14 November 2008 about 1500-2000 litres of red diesel were taken from a storage tank on a farm at Collingbourne Kingston.
Thieves used an angle grinder to cut off the security shroud and drained the tank. From tyre tracks it is possible a 4×4 pickup type vehicle was used.

Please send me any registration numbers of vehicles seen snooping around rural locations because even if we don’t catch them in the act of theft, use of red diesel is illegal to use in road vehicles
so I can dip their fuel and if found using it, I can seize the vehicle then Customs and Excise can not only heavily fine them, but recoup estimated back duty so a triple whammy!

Thank you, Mark
