A thief took advantage of a truck parked in a secluded area to steal gasoline.  A woman had left her Chevy Colorado truck parked in an area on Bulman Road near Hereron Road on March 12th.  When she returned to it around 7:30 p.m. that evening she discovered a male lying by the vehicle who quickly left before she got too close.  She drove away but soon noticed the smell of gasoline, causing her to pull over to the side of the road where she found she was leaving a trail of gas.  The attending tow truck driver discovered a small hole drilled into the gas tank.  The male that she caught at the truck is described as being a Caucasian, approximately 30 years of age with a medium build, blonde hair and a very long beard.  He was wearing a baseball hat and Carhartt-type work clothes.  He drove away in a black Ford Focus.
