Gas thief hits U-Haul truck renter

According to Moab City Police, someone stole half of a tank of gas from a U-Haul truck overnight between Tuesday and Wednesday July 2-3, while the renter was staying at a local motel.

Police said that someone opened a gas valve on one of the U-Haul trucks in the motel parking lot and then siphoned a half tank of gas from the valve.

Police reviewed security footage from the motel but were unable to see the robbery take place due to the truck being parked out of view.
