I haven't seen this done since I was a kid but a Richland man recently was spotted syphoning gas out of an old Chevy.

My family was notorious for stealing gas and you don't see a lot of thieves pulling that stunt these days but looks like someone still knows how to do it.

Richland Police Department logged this report.

The owner of Craftsman Cabinets and Floor Covering on 122 Wellsian Way has reported syphoning of fuel from his work truck, which is parked in the parking lot. The theft is believed to have occurred on 06/24/2017 at approximately 4:50 pm. The suspects can be seen arriving in a vehicle on surveillance footage. The vehicle appears to be a red in color, Chevrolet, Crew Cab. If you have any information regarding the identity of the suspects, please call 509-942-7340

It does remind us that in the summertime to be even more vigilant of car prowlers because of longer daylight hours, so you don't become a victim.
