ROSEVILLE (CBS13/AP) – Roseville Police have made an arrest in the theft of nearly 1,000 gallons of gas from a Shell station.
Police arrested 32-year-old Edward Valila Monday morning. More arrests are expected, but Roseville detectives believe Valila is the “main guy”.
The station’s manager, Tony Sandhu, said Saturday that thieves in a pickup truck somehow disabled the meter to steal 300 gallons of gas after business hours on Sept. 27.
Sandhu said security cameras caught them returning the next night and taking another 300 gallons of gas, some of it going to a tank in the truck’s bed.
He said they came back again during store hours and siphoned 300 more gallons, but a cashier recognized the suspicious vehicle and took down its license plate.
Sandhu estimates the stolen gas was worth $4,500.
Valila is being held on two felony charges of grand theft and conspiracy to commit a crime. His bail is set at $5,000.
