Thefts at the bulding site and the chemist

Over the weekend of 8th-11th March, 2013, around 600 litres of diesel was stolen from the tanks of two vehicles at a building site in the Karl-Herrmann-Flach-Straße.  Police do not know how the thieves managed to transport this amount of fuel and are asking for anyone who can help with the enquiry to call 06171 62400.

On the same weekend thieves broke into a chemist shop in Camp-King-Allee between Saturday afternoon and Monday morning.  They forced the door open and entered both the shop floor area and the store, although it appears they did not take anything.  The damage is estimated at €1,500.
