A Georgia man has been arrested after he allegedly drilled holes in the tank of a parked U-Haul truck to steal gas during the ongoing fuel shortage, police said Thursday.

The suspect, Jesse Smith, 25, managed to collect just five gallons of fuel, and his actions caused a massive gasoline spill in Griffin, Georgia, police said.

The article goes on to state the following:

Firefighters worked in the rain through Wednesday afternoon to clean up the spill. Police said it was caused by damage to the fuel tank, which had been intentionally punctured.

Griffin police wrote in a Facebook post, “While we understand that there is a shortage on gas, we also want to remind everyone to exercise safety, patience, and common sense. The shortage is temporary and we anticipate the gas stations returning to full operations soon. In the meantime, remain calm and don’t do anything to endanger yourself and others.”

“So while you’re creating a hazardous material spill, for 5 gallons of gasoline and cause firefighters to have to work in the rain, we appreciate you parking your truck behind the KFC where we can obtain a photo of your getaway vehicle,” police wrote in a separate Facebook post. “Also, the shots of you walking around the U-Haul trucks are helpful.”

Reporter Janice Yu tweeted, “UPDATE: Police say 25-year-old Jesse Smith, was arrested and charged with Criminal Damage to Property and Theft by Taking in connection to this.”
