Unless some new evidence comes forward, a police file of a ‘gas and dash’ at Main Street Esso on Tuesday evening will remain closed.
Cpl. John Butler said the incident took place at about 8:30 p.m. and video revealed that a male passenger in a four-door car got out of the vehicle, pumped $35 worth of gas, then got back in the vehicle and it drove off.
No license plate number could be seen.
Butler said this is the first ‘gas and dash’ incident for some time, but several months ago they were happening in Stephenville on a fairly regular basis.
