Here is a short piece of security camera footage showing a fuel theft in progress. It is a good example of the "Target Hardening" side of crime prevention, making our properties less attractive to Criminals. Prior to this video, this farmer had no real deterents in place and new he was having fuel theft. They installed some cameras and a simple audible horn alarm that was wired through the fuel bung. Watch the video, notice how the thief pulls up to the pump, its not his first trip, he knows the pump is shut off. Watch what happens when he looks at the wire running through the fuel bung and gives it a pull. This footage is from the first part of January. No one has been back since.
