Gas On The Blackmarket

17 04 2008

You knew it was going to happen. And happen it has.

Authorities arrested a fuel tanker driver today after they said he stole hundreds of gallons of gas from his company and sold it possibly for as low as $2 a gallon.

Dextan Thomas Hodge, 37, of Miami, admitted after his arrest that he’d stolen the gas from Petro-Chemical Transport eight times “for extra money,” according to a police report.

He is charged with grand theft and dealing in stolen property, said Miami-Dade police spokesman Detective Juan Villalba.

Hodge was arrested after he drove a tanker from Port Everglades and made an unscheduled stop in the 2100 block of Northwest 97th Street in Miami, just blocks from his home, Villalba said.

From Florida and read the whole story. This won’t be the last you see of stories like this, I assure you.
