Thieves Targeting Gasoline From Parked Vehicles

Posted: Updated:

Reno police say they've seen an increase in gas thefts in recent months.

They've gotten 15 reports in the last 10 weeks of thieves mostly siphoning gas from cars. However, in some cases gas tanks have been punctured, which can be potentially dangerous.

Police advise drivers to park in well-lit places and stay vigilant.
