Police: Man punctured gas tanks of several parked vehicles

Posted: Updated:
LEMOYNE, Pa. (WHTM) -

West Shore Regional police are looking for the man who stole gas from two parked vehicles at local businesses.

Police said they believe the man punctured the gas tanks of two trucks with a screwdriver to gain access to the fuel.

The crimes occurred at two businesses in the 1000 block of Columbus Avenue in Lemoyne.

"I can't say that I have heard of this before, but I guess with the price of fuel these days criminals are stealing everything," West Shore Regional Police Chief Michael Hope said.

Surveillance video briefly shows the man in the parking lot of OE Performance Tuning with a gas tank in his hand.

He was described as a black male, 5'10" tall, 230 pounds, wearing a varsity-style jacket with light-colored sleeves and a dark jacket body.

Police said he might be operating a red, full-sized Chevrolet pickup truck.

Anyone with information is asked to call West Shore Regional police at 717-737-8734.
