Waseca County Diesel Theft 07 Feb 13

The Waseca County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the theft of around 150 gallons of diesel fuel from a farm north of Janesville. The crime occurred at some point Monday afternoon, and there are no suspects at this time. Authorities say that the rising cost of fuel typically leads to an increase in these types of crimes, and that residents can protect themselves by buying gas cap locks and installing cameras to catch thieves in the act. Well-lit yards and barking dogs also help ward off potential thieves.
