Over the past couple of months, the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP have seen an increase in theft of fuel from vehicles. The vehicles are having their fuel tanks drilled, causing a costly repair.
Not only are residents being targeted, several of our local vehicle dealerships have been hit hard with this. In the recent months, Island Ford, Toyota Duncan and Galaxy Motors have reported vehicles on their lots have sustained damage to the fuel tanks and fuel missing.
We encourage anyone who has been a victim to this crime to report it. If you have any information regarding the thefts of fuel or have witnessed suspicious activity, please contact the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP at 250-748-5522 or Crime Stoppers at cowichancrimestoppers.com; you can TEXT a tip by typing COWICHAN plus your tip to 274637, or call 1-800-222-8477.
