Spate of thefts of home heating oil

PEOPLE ACROSS WEXFORD have been warned to keep a close eye on their home heating oil.

Chief Superintendent John Roche this week warned that oil has been stolen from tanks at home right around the Wexford district in recent days. Gas cylinders have also been stolen from commercial premises.

'Maybe it's all to do with the recession, but there's definitely a pattern there at the moment,' said Chief Supt Roche.

He advised householders to invest in 'a decent lock' for their oil tanks to prevent their expensive fills of oil being siphoned away by opportunistic thieves.
