THE public was today invited to turn detective to help track two motorists who drove off from Wisbech petrol stations without paying.
Police would like to speak to the man in the first image in relation to the theft of �79.61 worth of fuel from TCS in Biggs Road, Wisbech, at approximately 5pm on Tuesday February 3. A female and child were passengers in the vehicle at the time.
The second image relates to a man wanted for questioning in relation to the theft of �87 worth of fuel from Rainbow Express petrol station in Elm High Road, Wisbech, at approximately 2.30pm on Friday February 6.
Terrington Safer Neighbourhood Team has been working with petrol retailers and the British Oil Securities Syndicate (BOSS) to tackle fuel thefts, known as 'bilkings', in the area.
