BURGLARS targeted a tank of heating oil and escaped with around £50 worth of fuel.
The property on Addis Lane, in Cutnall Green, was broken into by thieves between 11pm on October 24 and 8.30am the next day.
The burglars ripped of the security belt, lifted the top of the tank and syphoned the oil out.
Police believe the intruders were disturbed other wise more would have been taken.
Anyone with any information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
