Come on WO, is the man the culprit or just the witness. You claim he stole petrol, the police claim he may have witnessed the theft. If the police are right, then you are accusing an innocent man here?

He obviously is the culprit - the police just talk embarrasing b******* in these stories when the say they 'may have witnessed a crime'
Let just tell them to get more ANPR cars on the road and sort out this false plate problem we have.

Proactive policing is far better than reactive - the police and government just need to be reminded of this..... a lot!

He could be a witness, and he could have been a culprit. Without all the facts one cannot claim either. He may have given the money to the passenger to pay and it wasn't paid over. He could be perfectly innocent.

Perhaps they should have posted a picture of the illusive passenger then!
