Police arrested four people for allegedly stealing Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC) fuel stocks that were being transported to filling stations.

The suspects had allegedly transferred the fuel from the CPC bowser to another bowser, and filled the CPC bowser with furnace oil to avoid detection.

Police noted that this large scale racket has been in operation for a long time two bowsers were seized following the raid.

The suspects are to be produced in court today.
