Three men have been charged with going equipped to steal fuel from lorries at an auction mart in Thirsk.

They were stopped and arrested by officers from North Yorkshire Police’s Rural Taskforce on Friday 21 August 2020. Police were conducting proactive patrols of lorry parks following an increase in thefts from HGVs in the area.

The men, aged 22, 23 and 24, from the Cleveland area, have been charged with going equipped for theft, by having with them large plastic containers, screwdrivers, gloves and mole grips.

They will appear at York Magistrates Court early next year.
