Good evening,

 

Welcome to the weekly update on the incidents that have occurred over the last week (W/B 09/05/2022) Again, as with last week and a number of previous weeks, there have been a number of fuel thefts that have taken place at both construction sites and farms across the country. This coincides with the steady rise is fuel theft. 

 

There have still been a number of thefts of building materials, plant and tools from construction sites. Once again, we would urge site managers to ensure that all materials and tools are removed from sites when not in operation.
