…as vehicle runs out of gas
Luck ran out on a car thief when the vehicle he stole ran out of gas leaving him stranded at the Victoria Gas Station Tuesday night.
The man who had stolen the car in the city was caught when he could not pay for the fuel he had ordered to get him to his intended destination, somewhere in Berbice.
This newspaper understands that the car belongs to an ex-policeman who had parked it somewhere in the city.
Thankfully, he did not leave too much fuel in the tank.
So when the thief took off, the owner was certain that he would not get too far and he reported to the police that his car was stolen.
The police sent out an all station message alerting all its vehicular patrols.
But they were not required to go into operation for almost as soon as the thief took the car he realized that the tank was almost empty.
Although he had no money he still decided stop at the Victoria Gas Station, East Coast Demerara for a top up on fuel.
But when he could not pay for the $2000 gasoline he had ordered, he was promptly confronted by the security guard who prevented him from driving away.
Contact was made with the police who went to the gas station to investigate.
To their surprise, they soon learnt that the car was the same vehicle that was reported stolen.
The car thief was arrested and is assisting police with their investigations.
