Truck and 4,500 litres of fuel stolen from agricultural operator

A truck and 4,500 litres of fuel were stolen from an agricultural co-operative in Hay-on-Wye, on the border of Wales and Herefordshire, last week.

The truck, a green Daf box van, was stolen from Hay Brecon between midnight and 3am on Thursday 12 December, along with 4,500 litres of red and white diesel from two pumps.

It was then used to ram the firm’s gates, causing an estimated £2,000 worth of damage.

The vehicle and diesel were later found 35 miles away in Abersychan, Pontypool, having been abandoned after colliding with a parked car. Police said two people were seen running away from the incident.

A spokesman for Hay Brecon said this is the second incident of vehicle theft at the company, which had another truck stolen 12 months ago.

He was unable to comment further as a police investigation is still ongoing.

PC Dean Welton-Wall of West Mercia Police said: “This happened in a rural area on the border between Herefordshire and Powys in the early hours, and while there are not likely to have been many people about, we hope anyone who was around will remember seeing something suspicious.”

Anyone with information is being urged to call West Mercia Police on 101, quoting incident 48-s-121213, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
