The police detained a 33-year-old on Kijowska Street because his car had illegal lights. It soon turned out that the problems with the car did not end there. The license plates were changed, and the driver was carrying several fuel canisters in the trunk. His background interested the police.

The police stopped the Volkswagen, which did not have the required headlights. When they checked the vehicle’s license plates, it turned out that they belonged to another Kia car. – The 33-year-old sitting behind the wheel did not want to explain who the car belongs to and who changed the plates – said commissioner Paulina Onyszko from the Warsaw VI District Police Headquarters.

She added that the officers checked the Volkswagen VIN number in the system and determined its rightful owner. – The uniformed officers decided to carefully check the man and search the vehicle – explained Onyszko.

They found fuel in the trunk

In the trunk they found several canisters of various capacities. Two had fuel. Police officers began to suspect that the Volkswagen controlled by them was used to steal fuel at stations. Their suspicions were confirmed. “The evidence of this was the recordings from the surveillance cameras,” the police officer said.
