Police are sending early morning patrols to the farming areas north-east of Millicent in a bid to deter thieves who are stealing fuel.

There have been reports of hundreds of litres of diesel being stolen from farms in the Furner, Short and Claywells areas.

The fuel has been used to drive centre pivots which are located in isolated areas.

A firearm has also been reported as stolen from this area.
