Reports of oil theft in Carn and Buncrana
INISHOWEN’S TOP cop has warned homeowners and businesses throughout the peninsula to be extra vigilant when securing their oil tanks as a number of homes and businesses have been targeted in recent weeks.
Speaking to the ‘Inishowen Independent’ this week amidst reports of oil thefts in the Millbrae Heights area of Carndonagh as well as in other locations in the peninsula, Superintendent Eugene McGovern said unfortunately this type of crime is much more common at this time of year.
“It’s an awful thing to say, but we are advising people at the minute not to put large amounts of oil in their tank,” said Supt. McGovern. “We are only advising them to put in smaller amounts in case of it being targeted.”
