This time of year people especially in the rural locations rely heavily on heating oil and therefore the demand will increase. Due to covid restrictions and the higher demand there will be delays for heating oil being delivered to residential and commercial properties. Therefore there could be an increase in reported theft of oil.
Please be extra vigilant and put measures in place to keep your oil tank as secure as possible to reduce the chance of being a victim of crime.
