According to reports from CVM TV, around 80,000 gallons of fuel was stolen from one of its transmission site in Mount Airy, Westmoreland yesterday afternoon.
Described as a “daring daylight heist“, the incident took place at 2:30 pm, when three men in a Toyota Corolla motorcar siphoned fuel from the Generator at the site.
A CVM TV contract employee attempted to challenge the men however, one of the thieves brandished a gun, and they resumed their illegal activity by removing the remaining fuel, before escaping from the area.
The matter was later reported to the police.
