Police Search for Man Who Stole $2,500 Worth of Gas

Police now say they know who's has stolen more than $2,500 worth of gasoline from a local gas station. They found their suspect by looking at the station's surveillance video.

Police believe the suspect would take a credit card and put it in the gasoline pumps and it would somehow override the credit card system. That means, the person was able to pump gas but no charge was ever recorded on the credit card.

Police believe it was Horace Webster who did that and they are now looking for him. He is 29 years old and is 6'3" tall and weighs 235 pounds. Police say he frequents gas stations and is usually seen hanging around Oak Street as well as Court and Arba Streets.

Of course, police won't reveal how he allegedly managed to manipulate the gas pumps but Captain Huey Thornton says the thief had a racket going. "What he does is he will have citizens or people who come up to purchase gasoline - for instance one case he pumped $70.00 worth of gas and he only charged the person $30.00 worth of gas. So, are these unknown people who just pull up or does he tell his friends? These are unknown people who apparently just pull up."  

Police also arrested the gas station's security guard Thursday night, Derrick Jackson, for allegedly participating in the theft.

If you have any information on the whereabouts of Horace Webster, please call Crimestoppers at 215-STOP.
