Red Deer RCMP uncover stolen property used to support large amount of fuel theft

One man is facing several charges stemming from the investigation of a stolen gas card used to purchase over 1,500 litres of diesel.

Such a large amount of fuel is a unique theft and seizure, police say.

Following this seizure, Red Deer RCMP Crime Reduction Team executed search warrants and uncovered a substantial amount of stolen property used to support fuel thefts and the sale of the stolen fuel.

More details will be revealed Friday morning.
