|Households and businesses are urged to be vigilant after heating oil was stolen from a house in Kinlochbervie recently.|
The oil tank had only been filled-up a few weeks ago and it is estimated that hundreds of litres were stolen, which at today's prices is worth a significant sum of money.
If you haven't done so already it may be worth fitting a locking device to your oil tank. It won't stop a determined thief but it might put them off. A security light connected to a movement sensor is also suggested.
Please inform the Police if you see (or have seen) any suspicious-looking people or vehicles in the vicinity of houses and fuel tanks.
Rhiconich Police Station can be contacted on 01971 521222.
