Man Arrested For Stealing Fuel From Tanker At Bole
Bole District Police command has arrested a 24-year-old unemployed Senior High School graduate, Isaac Gakpetor, for stealing fuel.
The suspect is accused of stealing gallons of fuel from tankers that park at rest spots at certain filing stations at Bole.
Bole District Crime Officer, ASP Wisdom Pavis Agbeklah, said he was caught red-handed after some fuel attendants laid ambush to nab the perpetrator.
Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Agbeklah noted that there had been complaints in the past five months of missing gallons and shortage of fuel in vehicle tanks parked at the fuel station.
A review of the CCTV revealed suspect Isaac draining petrol from cars into six gallons.

He was handed over to the police and his motorbike, stolen gallons of fuel and other possessions have been confiscated.
The suspect will be put before the Bole District Magistrate Court on Thursday, August 18, 2022.
