20.07.12; A Roseland Online reader has written asking residents to be on their alert for oil thefts in the area.
Living in Calendra, Veryan, the lady was awoken by the sound of her side gate bolt being slid back during Wednesday night. This gate leads directly to her oil tank, presently empty, which she suspects was the target.
With oil costs at a premium, thieves can make off with thousands of pounds worth of fuel in just a few minutes, so it is advisable for everyone to be on their alert and make sure their tanks have suitable security.
If you hear anything suspicious, you can contact the Tregony Police Station on 01872 530254 (Non Emergency Only), Devon & Cornwall Police Switchboard on 101 (Non Emergency Only), Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, or if it is an emergency and the incident is happening or the offender is still close by, dial 999.
