Fri 3-10-2017

(Peterson)-- Clay county authorities are asking for the public's assistance as they investigate a couple of gas drive-offs.

The Sheriff's Office says the first incident occurred shortly after 2:00 pm on February 28th at the Ampride station in Peterson. Authorities say a passenger in a blue GMC Jimmy got out of the vehicle and pumped $31.73 in gas. The person then got back into the vehicle without paying. Authorities say the vehicle then went east bound on Highway 10.

Deputies say on Friday, March 3rd, around 7:41 pm the same vehicle pulled into the same station, once again pumped gas, and left without paying. An attendant tried to get a license plate, but it was covered in mud.

Anyone with any additional information should contact the Clay County Sheriff's Office.
