On Friday I found out my wallet was nicked after I had a put some fuel in the tank. I was in Bathurst visiting my mum who is in hospital there. I got talking with the console operator, while waiting for my old man to ring me back with his credit card details. The consol operator claimed that Coles Shell lost over $6Million in drive offs last fin year and that apparently the ACT was one of the hot spots.
He said that when the cops were called they would respond by saying “Don’t bother us now we are doing real police work”. He also went on about the price of housing (He claimed he had relatives here and was able to name suburbs which I suspect most outsiders would not).
In short I am not sure if it was another case of Canberra bashing but I didn’t know we were a hot spot for fuel theft!
