Consistency proved the undoing of a serial petrol-thief who was caught by police after he targeted the same Feilding service station three times in two months.

Feilding police have charged a 31-year-old unemployed man with seven counts of theft beginning in June this year.
The man had taken petrol worth up to $100 at a time from service stations  from Palmerston North to Marton.

Three of the thefts occurred at Feilding’s Kimbolton Rd BP Service Station, which resulted in a positive identification for police who were able to arrest the man after they searched  his home yesterday.

Feilding Sergeant Grant Lawton said police would be seeking reparation.
