Two men, one from Eindhoven and the other from Geldrop, were captured in Dongen with 4000 liters of stolen diesel in their truck’s cargo space, yesterday evening. According to the police, the two were professional diesel thieves.
The truck which was used for the diesel theft is equipped with a pump installation. Four full tanks of 1000 liters each were found in the cargo space. The police were alerted by a security guard of an unmanned petrol station, just after he had seen the two suspects step into a small white truck.
The twosome were detained on suspicion of theft. Their truck and its contents were confiscated.
