Fuel thieves siphon hundreds of litres from North Wales haulier

Fuel thieves have siphoned hundreds of litres of fuel from a North Wales aggregates haulier.

The thieves stole around 750 litres of diesel from three vehicles at Porthmadog-based OJ Jones Son on Wednesday night (13 February).

Director Dewi Jones said: “It’s very distressing. The price of fuel goes up, the government puts duty up and in a recession like this you’re going to get more crime as there are not enough police on the streets.”

CCTV footage revealed that thieves broke into the firm’s yard at 10.38pm on Wednesday with an electric pump.

Jones told that there have been four incidents in the area in three weeks, with vehicles run by Gwynedd Council also targeted.

Jones added: “When they do catch these criminals the penalty they get is very lenient. Now there’s extortionate rates, it’s the victims that suffer.”

Police are currently investigating the case and are urging anyone with information to call 101.

OJ Jones Son has received support from the council to develop a new site with a vehicle testing lane. It is currently awaiting planning permission.
