Hunt on for household fuel tank thieves

DETECTIVES have launched a major hunt for a gang of fuel thieves who target oil tanks near houses. The gang has already stolen several thousand euro worth of fuel from homes.

The gang struck in recent days in the Clontibret and Emyvale areas of Co Monaghan.

A number of similar thefts were also previously reported in the Co Cavan area.

A senior garda spokesman urged all householders in the region to step up home security in relation to their fuel tank, to prevent "easy access" by the thieves.

It is believed the gang involved may be operating from the North.
