Some thieves in Australia tried to siphon petrol from the gas tank of a bus. This bus was parked in Laverton, Australia. When they attempted to siphon the gasoline, they instead got a mouthful of raw sewage.
However, this is not the first time this crime is reported in Australia. The same incident took place several years ago and hence the irony.
Police came to know about the mix up when they found a cap next to the bus. The evidence says that none of the gas was stolen.
Police spokesman Heath Soutar said that,“We can infer they beat a very hasty retreat. A somewhat bitter taste in their mouth.” He added that police have “absolutely zero interest” in recovering what the thieves took from the bus. But officials are still looking for the offenders.
Also, the reports also suggests that, this kinds of siphoning crimes are at high rate all round the world. China is at great pace. Beijing prison once sentenced three men to life in prison. They found a plot which contained siphoned oil worth 71 million. One of the reports suggest that thieves have now adapted ‘destructive’ mechanism for stealing oil. Some measures to stop this serious crime must be undertaken.
