The police in Borgarfjörður have received two reports in the past week about incidents of gasoline theft, according to www.mbl.is. The stolen fuel has been taken from personal gas storage tanks on farms in the area. The two incidents took place at the same time on the same weekend, and it is therefore believed that the guilty individual or individuals were travelling in the area.
The farms in question are located in Norðurárdal and Stafholtstungur. It is estimated that 150 litres of diesel fuel were taken from the first farm and 200 – 250 litres from the second farm.
The chief police officer in the area, Theodór Þórðarson, reports that no leads have been uncovered. He requests that any suspicious individual be reported to the police immediately.
