Fuel Thefts

The Morinville RCMP would like to make the public aware of a string of fuel thefts that have occurred in the Morinville and Sturgeon County area in recent weeks. The RCMP have investigated a series of fuel thefts where the suspects used a power drill to drill out the bottom of the plastic fuel tanks of parked cars. The thieves then filled out gas cans and leave the area.
RCMP would like to encourage citizens to be vigilant and park their vehicles in well lit areas, in areas with good video surveillance or to park them inside locked garages. RCMP would also like to remind the public that if they observe activity that appears suspicious then they should contact the police.
