GRANDVIEW - In what could be considered a felony as the price of gasoline continues to rise, Grandview police are investigating the theft of $14 worth of gas from a Grandview gas station Thursday afternoon.
The drive-off incident, which occurred in the 600 block of Wine Country Road, could well become a regular occurrence, said Mark Ware, a Grandview Police Department spokesman.
Thefts at the gas pump could also fall into the felony category especially in cases where individuals fill up and then drive away without paying, Ware said.
So far, the police have no suspects in this particular case, he said.
Grandview police are also investigating the theft of a bicycle from the 400 block of West Fifth Street and the theft of two cell phones from the 300 block of Douglas Street, he said.
