Three people are facing charges after Harris County deputies say they stole 446 gallons of diesel fuel from a Citgo station on Old Beaumont Highway and Sheldon Road.
The three suspects were nabbed as they were pulling away from the pumps in a black truck pulling a trailers loaded with two large clear tanks filled with fuel. It happened just after midnight Wednesday morning.
Investigators say the trio is facing even more charges since the driver and one passenger had open warrants. One of the suspects was found to be in possession of methamphetamine. Surveillance video from the gas station showed the vehicle and its occupants removing the fuel. Officials with Harris County Precinct 3 say the fuel was valued at over $1500.
