Cops seize mobile gasolene station

Members of the Island Special Constabulary Force (ISCF) seized a motor truck and other accessories that were being used to operate a mobile gasolene station in Lawrence Tavern, St Andrew recently.

Among the items seized were:

A GMC motor truck with a built-in steel tank, containing gasoline

Petrol pump

Fourteen motor vehicle tyres

A cable

Mechanical tools.

Reports are that a team of officers was on patrol at about 2 p.m. when a man was seen pumping gas from a tank in the back of a motor truck retro-fitted to look like a gas station, into a car.

The man was unable to provide a licence permitting him to sell gasolene. He was subsequently arrested and charged with breaches of the Petroleum Act. Another man who later turned up at the police station was also arrested and charged.

The men are to appear in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court on Wednesday, January 15.

The police are warning members of the public not to buy petroleum from unlicenced petroleum dealers and are asking them to report such persons by contacting Police 119 emergency number, Crime Stop at 311 or the nearest police station.
