Police find gas thief

A Sûreté du Québec officer got more than he bargained for when he stopped  a car last Wednesday for contravening the Highway Safety Code.

After he pulled the car over, the officer received a report that a car had left from a  gas station on St-Charles Ave. in Vaudreuil-Dorion without paying for the fill up.

The description of the car matched, so police arrested the driver, a 20-year-old man, and his 19-year-old male passenger. The driver was also suspected to have stolen gas from a service station in St-Zotique last month.

The driver was charged with stealing gas, stealing a licence plate, and violating conditions of probation. The passenger was released.
