This doesn't suprise me one bit.
The scale of 'petty theft' in large companies or organisations is staggering.
A 'friend of a friend' came out of the Navy after about 18 years and has a house full of stuff.
Just as one example, he nicked camping equipment for his whole family (5 of them) from work, tents, sleeping bags, jackets, mats, clothing, stoves, pots, pans, torches, food packets, water barrels, pumps, solar showers... you name it.
Then his mate that also worked with him in the Navy for about 10 years must have nicked literally hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of fuel and other stuff, single handedly.
They did aircraft refuelling for a while and nicked about hundreds if not thousands of litres a week in jerry cans and sold it to farmers and mates for use in diesel cars and plant etc.
One very regular scam was when they would be on fuel duty and have to drive all over the UK in those OSHKOSH articulated Fuel trucks. They used to stop at a normal garage where they could use an Army/RAF/Navy fuel card, but instead of filling the trucks tanks they would fill about 20-30 Jerry cans purely from themselves (to give the impression from the receipt that they had filled the truck), then when they truck itself actually needed refuelled they would fill it from the tanker on the back that they were supposed to be delivering to a helicopter landing site!
t you not if you wanted a generator, tools, diesel, clothing, supplies... these boys would get it.
