Why focus on these comparatively trivial crimes when people are having cars and vans worth thousands of pounds stolen.

The petrol stations seem to be using the police as private security when they could police the problem themselves by insisting on advance payment of fuel.

Agreed, Advance payment of fuel (normal in many countries including the USA) is just too much common sense for this country,

What i don't agree with is that these are trivial crimes. The thieves are always in cars with false plates, uninsured and well...... scumbags! bang em up!!!!
