(ABC 6 News) – A gas thief got away after a gas station clerk tried to chase him down with her own car in Oronoco.
On February 3rd, an employee at the Casey’s General Store in Oronoco noticed a man drive off after filling his tank. The Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office says she then got in her own car and tried to chase him down.
The woman chased him through town where she claims the suspect “nudged” her with his car, causing her to spin off into a snow bank. That’s when she decided to call police for help.
After all that, the suspect still got away. We spoke to the manager of that Casey’s and he says they do not have security cameras at the pump to get a clear description of the suspect.
