Fuel warn­ing

■ TWEED po­lice say they are tar­get­ing fuel thieves fol­low­ing a spate of drive-offs from ser­vice sta­tions. Po­lice said they would fo­cus their at­ten­tion on fuel thefts af­ter sev­eral lo­cal ser­vice sta­tions re­ported peo­ple driv­ing off with­out pay­ing. “If a per­son fails to pay for fuel they can be charged with a crim­i­nal of­fence known as fraud and be re­quired to ap­pear at the lo­cal court,” po­lice said. They said if a per­son is found guilty of the of­fence, the driver could re­ceive a crim­i­nal con­vic­tion which could have a long-term ef­fect on ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties, overseas travel and per­sonal rep­u­ta­tion. They warned ser­vice sta­tions had CCTV cam­eras and reg­is­tra­tion plate de­tails were usu­ally recorded.
