What a Gas!

Watch for a bit of hanky-panky at the gas pumps.

Investigators said a gas station attendant at a Hess station located on John Young Parkway called police and said the driver of a white Ford pickup looked suspicious and lingered too long at the pump . . .

“He had an 800-gallon tank in the back of this thing and it was custom-welded,” Orange County sheriff’s Cmdr. Jeff Stonebreaker said. “There is some very unique equipment the way this thing is set up. It is obviously not for personal business use. It is set up for one use only, which is to steal fuel and redistribute it illegally.”

The man also had a key that disabled pump meters, detectives said . . .

Police said the man had such a sophisticated setup that it is doubtful he worked alone and may be part of a crime ring.

‘Tis one innovative thief. Maybe he could sell it to the police.
