Gasoline Theft

Call the police. Pumping gas without paying is theft. Get a description of the car and the driver and anyone else in the car. Note the make, model, and color of the car, as well as the license plate number. Don't leave the store. As always, your personal safety comes first. Don't attempt to physically stop, detain, or chase the person.
