I can't believe it......................
THEY CAUGHT THE PERP!!!!!!
I am NOT kidding you.
At least he was stupid enough to get caught! Especially at midnight! What a bad time to steal gas, especially when I was awake!
The son of a biotch was stealing gas from the DeVille next door, when the cops busted him! They were coming around the corner, and saw him, and they must have flipped their lights on. The kid didn't even bother to run because he had a siphon pump and was caught in the act! I went outside to see what was going on, and sure enough, it was him, the kid I suspected from down the road!
And to top it off? He had one of OUR gas cans he must have took a while ago. I was wondering where that can went. Anyways, the neighbor and I both pressed charges, and he is being charged with 2 counts of trespassing, and 2 counts of theft. I told the police that my gas has been for quite a while, and they said it was most likely him since he had one of our gas cans that was stolen a few weeks ago. When they arrested him they found
A 2 Gallon gas can
A 5 Gallon gas can
A manual siphon pump
A long flexible plastic? rod (exactly what I expected so he could bust out the screens)
I just cannot believe that he was busted so quickly. Apparently he knew what cars took premium, and found that mine was locked now, and went next door, which happens to be a corner house, so that'* how the cops busted him because he was clearly visible.
I feel so much better now, yet I still fear my car will be vandalized because I pressed charges.
Lesson? Don't steal a gas can that clearly has "GOINS" (last name) written on it.
