Police: Rock Hill woman wanted for stealing gas 6 times, maybe more

jmcfadden@heraldonline.comApril 8, 2013 

— Police are looking for a Rock Hill woman accused of stealing gas from the same store at least six times over the past three months.

At about noon Saturday, police spoke with an employee at the Murphy Express convenience store on Old York Road, who said the driver of a gray Toyota Camry has repeatedly pumped $10 to $20 worth of gas before driving off without paying, according to a Rock Hill Police report.

The employee gave police documentation showing gas had been stolen once in January, three times in February, once in March, and again on Saturday.

On one occasion, the employee told police she managed to stop the driver, who paid for most of the fuel she had pumped that day.

The same person stole fuel at other times, the employee said, but she did not have documentation to prove it. Police showed the gas station attendant a picture of the car’s registered owner, 47, and she confirmed the gas thief’s identity.

Six arrest warrants for larceny of gas have been issued.
