Fuel thieves syphoned diesel worth around £1,000 from two lorries on the A46 Lincoln bypass in one night on February 18.
As reported yesterday, thieves took some 490 litres of diesel from a Volvo HGV lorry parked in a lay-by on the bypass between the Skellingthorpe and Doddington roundabouts.
The fuel stolen was worth around £650.
Then a second fuel theft was reported for the same night, from another lorry on the A46 bypass, a Scania HGV.
The driver was parked overnight between the Riseholme Roundabout and Lincoln Road and woke up to find fuel was missing.
Again, there was no damage to the vehicle, but around 250 litres of fuel, worth around £350, had been stolen from the tank.
This brings the total of fuel syphoned that night in Lincoln to over £1,000.
Anyone who saw suspicious activity that night along the bypass should contact Lincolnshire Police on 101 quoting incident numbers 24 and 34 of 19/02/2014.
