Gas Thefts On Rise In California

October 08, 2012  | 

With the price of gas in California reaching record highs, thieves are increasingly targeting gas tanks with the most recent heist siphoning more than $4,500 from a gas station over a span of three days.

Police in Roseville, Calif., have arrested a man for allegedly stealing more than 1,100 gallons of gas from a Shell station four times in three days starting on Sept. 27.

Roseville Police told ABC News that a male suspect is in custody, but they are still looking for a female suspect who they've identified. The truck was located and recovered by police with 110 gallons of gas on board. The gas has since been turned over the the station's manager, Tony Sandhu.

I live east of San Francisco and gas prices in my area are as high as
$5.02 per gallon. Completely ridicules and makes me sick how much money these blood suckin Oil Companies are making off us. It is only going to get worse...........no jobs, unemployment benefits getting cut on people early, food prices keep going up and what are we to do. What a complete fuc-ing messssssss. Thank You Mr. President, you are doing a great fuc-ing job....................you got my VOTE because I know I am doing better then I was 4 years ago....yeah right.

This should provide some work for retired and off duty cops. HEAVEN KNOWS WE NEED IT WITH THE PRICE OF HEALTH INSURANCE TAKING MORE OF OUR PENSION CHECKS EVERY YEAR.

I just love it when these owners of the stations whine that "We're not making more then a few pennies on a gallon". Right. Have a recently retired acquaintance who did the books for some of these poor boys and used to get a Christmas bonus running from a grand up from his clients. Maybe obumer will vow to drop prices to a buck a gallon just to get reelected. Blues, stay safe.
