Fuel thefts are called inside jobs

At least 10 companies complained that for over the past eight months their vehicle fuel bills have risen noticeably.

The complaints resulted in the detention of 12 drivers Wednesday on the allegation that they were taking fuel from their firms’ vehicles, said the Judicial Investigating Organization.

Judicial police in Heredia said that the fuel was sold at a location in San Francisco de Heredia.

Agents said that when they raided the San Francisco location Wednesday they found a machine that was used to remove the fuel and eight containers that held diesel.
