An es­ti­mated 500 litres of gaso­line and 750 litres of diesel fuel val­ued at $1,750 was stolen from a prop­erty on North Road in the Houghton area. Po­lice say some­one forcibly re­moved the seal­ing vents off of two fuel stor­age tanks in the early morn­ing hours on Sun­day. “Busi­nesses and farms with large fuel stor­age should make sure pumps and the ac­cess to the stor­age tanks are se­cured with heavy duty locks,” an OPP re­lease states. “If the lo­ca­tion is iso­lated and un­su­per­vised for long pe­ri­ods of time, con­sider in­stalling lights and se­cu­rity cam­eras.” Nor­folk OPP en­cour­age mem­bers of the public to report sus­pi­cious peo­ple or be­hav­iour by call­ing 1-888-310-1122.
