Man Wanted in Connection with Fuel Fraud


Used a Stolen BP Fuel Card

Police in Dudley have released an image of a man wearing a distinctive three coloured coat that they want to trace in connection with a number of fraudulent transactions using a stolen BP fuel card across the Black Country.

The man, described as an Asian male in his mid-twenties, around 6ft tall and stocky, wearing a black and white and red striped distinctive coat, was caught on CCTV using the card which had been stolen from an address in Halesowen at Christmas last year.

Between 30 December 2013 and January 2 2014, the card was used over 25 times at six local BP fuelling stations in Halesowen, Warley. Quinton, Lye, Oldbury and West Bromwich, resulting in over £4,000 worth of oil and fuel being stolen.

PC Steve Judd-Ingram from Dudley’s Vehicle Team said: “Officers investigating these transactions have already arrested and charged two men aged 34 and 29 in connection with the fraud.

“One man was charged with one offence and the other charged with four transactions. Both pleaded guilty to fraud by false representation.

“However I still want to trace the man captured on CCTV, who we believe was involved in 20 of these fraudulent transactions and I would like to hear from anyone who recognises him to call the vehicle team at Dudley on 101.”
