Monte Police stop ring of gas thieves

Montesano Police helped nab three people connected with the theft of at least 600 gallons of fuel stolen from a Montesano gas station. The suspects figured out a way to get the pumps to work without paying for it.

After reviewing surveillance video, officers spotted suspected vehicles around town and tracked the suspects back to their homes. Police in Thurston County assisted the operation.

Montesano Police Chief Brett Vance commended the officers in an interview with KXRO, “I’m really proud of my guys.”
