Chillicothe man arrested for stealing gasoline
(2008-05-21)
(WOUB) - A Chillicothe man is in custody after allegedly stealing gas from a semi truck parked at a convenience store in McArthur.

Carl Wilson was arrested by the Vinton County Sheriff's Office after he allegedly used a hose to take gas from another semi and use it to fill his tank.

When Wilson started to leave, the owner of the other truck then jumped into Wilson's semi, and stayed there until police pulled the semi over.

Vinton County Sheriff Dave Hickey says with gas prices sky-rocketing, this type of crime might become more prevalent.

Wilson told the other driver that he had a gun but no weapon was found.
