A South San Diego County Shell station is reviewing surveillance footage after one of its attendants allegedly turned off the pumps earlier this month when U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers were trying to fill up.

According to the Blue Lives Matter website, five officers stopped at the Shell station on San Ysidro Blvd. near Interstate 5 to fill up, when the attendant cut off the gas. Additionally, the attendant told the officers in the station’s convenience store that “We don’t typically serve CBP here,” the website reported.

The attendant, a 19-year-old woman named Alexis, told 10News she made a comment about not serving CBP officers to one who was in the convenience store. She said she was expressing frustration over her negative interactions with CBP officers in the past, but did serve them.

She said she didn't kill the pump.

Alla Alagha, the station’s assistant manager, told 10News "There’s definitely no policy against law enforcement,” he said. “We are a very friendly gas station. We have no problems with anyone. Business is business.”
