The RCMP in Quesnel are warning people of a string of gas thefts from vehicles.
The police responded to 6 thefts and attempted thefts in the last 3 days.
All the thefts took place at night time.
Police are particularly concerned that the thieves are using drills to access the gas tanks. This leads to spilled gas on the ground and a potential fire hazard.
Vehicle owners are encouraged to park their vehicles in a well-lit area, ensure they’re locked, and report any suspicious activity.
Anybody with information on these or other thefts is encouraged to call the RCMP at 250-992-9211 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
