THIEVES attempting to steal diesel in Market Rasen were disturbed during their raid on a Gainsborough Road yard at the weekend.
Police believe the offenders tried to steal the fuel from a tank overnight between Saturday and Sunday.
Officers think they were scared off as two containers full of diesel were left at the scene.
Also over this time period another yard was attacked again on Gainsborough Road, Middle Rasen, where red diesel was stolen.
Offenders stole two containers from within the yard in order to carry the diesel away.
Anyone with information should contact Lincolnshire Police on the non emergency 101 number.
