    what is the penalty for stealing gasoline?

    what is the penalty for stealing gas from a gas station fullservice tank?
    a friend of mine is currently considering himself a "fugitive" and is nervous because he assisted his friend in stealing about $13 worth of gas. :eek:

    Call me silly, but for $15, he should talk to his "co-conspirator" :D and go to the gas station to make good. He may or may not get off, but you will certainly fair better than getting a visit from the cops and THEN paying it back.

    Well, it depends if they got the boys' plate. They have really been cracking down on drive-offs around here. They really should just go back and make good on it. If nothing else, mail the money in anonymously, saying it is from the incident on _____date, etc. That would be better than nothing, but they should make good on it.

    i highly doubt they did, but on the rare occasion that they are found, what penalty could the two be facing? jason has been a good friend of mine for ages, and my worry is i would hate to see him go down for something as blatant as this...

    either way i might just mail in the few dollars myself in any case.

    what are the chances of them being found without any solid information, perhaps without even a license plate, based only on description and what is the possible penalty they would face if caught?

    that is my only remaining curiosity... :D

    Pay the $15 bucks, or get your *** locked up. Here in VA, you can/will lose your license for stealing gas.

    I went to get gas once, pumped the gas, and realized I left my cash at home! I talked to the manager and explained what happened, and cut a deal. I said, here is my name, address, phone number, license plate, driver's license number, etc...

    I am going to run home, get the cash, and bring it back. If I am not back in 30 minutes, call the cops. He said okay. I came back in 10 minutes, paid him, no problems.

    Here in CA, almost many of the gas stations have lock-up system until you pay the cost for the gas. I have seen one person trying to get the gas in the car until he realized he hafta pay first before fillin' her up. He pushed his car to the stall and walked away. His car was towed away because attendants were not that happy that he parked there without explaination. :D Glad to have that time of system better than the ol' fashioned gas filling machines. :D

    Shot 5 times with a M-16 or sent to Iraq to live with the Iraq POWs, here! LOL. I would just do the right thing and pay for the gas. They must have been desperate!
