I notified the police department that the filler neck originally had a anti-siphon screen, and said that the person would have had to poke it out in order to get to the gas. He said that the best they can do about that is possibly add criminal damaging onto the charges.
Apparently the kid ( found out he'* 18 ) broke down completely and spilled his guts about who he stole gas from.
I am not gonna worry too much about the screen. the tank is being dropped this spring anyways to put a new Walbro FP in, along with a new tank. I am sick of sputtering, and sometimes stalling going around corners.
