Thieves targeting air nozzles
Thieves are taking the nozzles off the air compressor hoses at some service stations in Christ Church and St Michael, causing the air pumps to be out of commission for weeks and, in some cases, several months.
After several complaints by motorists about their inability to fill their tyres, especially at night because air pumps at some gas stations were out of service for long periods, THE NATION investigated the matter.
Motorists said the inoperable pumps were a major inconvenience and highlighted five stations at which the pumps were not working: the Esso stations in Black Rock and Holborn, in St Michael, and Oistins in Christ Church, as well as the Sol service station in Black Rock, St Michael, and Top Rock, Christ Church.
The managers at a few of those stations reported that customers were stealing the nozzles regularly. (SB)
