At approximately 7:50 pm on Sunday, April 20, 2008, a black male subject tampered with the gas pump at the Circle K Convenience Store, 3100 N. Galloway Road, Lakeland. This enabled the suspect to pump gas without being detected on the computer system within the store.

Between 10 and 15 vehicles removed gasoline from the pump without paying for it. The suspect is pictured inside the store and was present as all of the vehicles were stealing gas.

The subject is approximately 30 years of age with a beard. He was wearing jogging pants and a white t-shirt. He was seen driving maroon in color Blazer or Explorer.
