Two Thousand Litres Of Diesel Stolen In Dorchester
Up to two thousand litres of fuel was stolen from a coach company in Dorchester.
Fuel was syphoned from a number of Damory Coaches, based on the Grove Trading Estate, sometime between 6pm on Wednesday 28 May and 9am on Thursday 29 May 2014.
It is believed that around 1500 to 2000 litres of diesel was stolen.
Nine coaches were also damaged as a result of the theft.
Police Constable James Prowse, of Dorchester Police, said:
“The theft of such a large quantity of fuel will have taken the offenders quite some time and will no doubt have occurred during the hours of darkness.
“I believe that the offenders will have loaded a number of barrels into a vehicle waiting outside of the Damory Coaches compound, before making good their escape.
“I am appealing for anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity around the Grove Trading Estate overnight on Wednesday 29 May, and anyone with information about those responsible, to contact Dorset Police urgently.
“I would also like to hear from anyone who been offered diesel in unusual circumstances, or for an unusually low price.”
Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101 quoting incident number 29:100.
