The Guyana Police Force has launched an investigation to determine how a truckload of smuggled fuel disappeared from under the nose of ranks at the Mackenzie Police Station.
The fuel disappeared sometime last week while the truck was impounded in the custody of the police.
A senior police official confirmed the theft and said that detectives are hard at work to determine who is responsible.
Kaieteur News understands that Guyana Energy Agency officials had intercepted the truck with the fuel (diesel) which was heading to an interior location.
They left the truck with the fuel in the custody of the police and it was parked in close proximity to the quarters of the officer in charge.
When the GEA officials returned with a view to commencing prosecution, they discovered that the fuel in the tanks had vanished and no one could provide an answer.
Investigators are working on two theories, one of which suggests that there was some collusion between police ranks and the owners of the fuel.
The other theory has to do with the suspicion that police ranks are responsible for the theft.
