POLICE are investigating two thefts in which gas cylinders were stolen from premises in the Wisbech area.
Officers are investigating whether the incidents in Lynn Road, Wisbech, and Tydd St Giles are linked.
The first, in which 10 oxygen, five acetylene, and three nitrogen cylinders were stolen, happened between Sunday (February 24) and yesterday (February 27).
The second happened earlier in February and again involved the theft of gas cylinders, and also cutting equipment.
Trevor Bracken, community engagement and crime reduction manager, said: "Legally, it is only possible to rent BOC cylinders, therefore, anyone in possession of such cylinders should hold an account with that company.
"If anyone has suspicions about someone's possession of these cylinders they should contact the crime management unit at March Police Station.
