At about 2:30 a.m. on May 22, police said a man described as black, late 20s, 5 feet 10 inches tall with a medium build began fueling his late-model silver Chevrolet pick-up at the fuel pumps of the Arco AM/PM station located at 2051 Taft Hwy.
Once the man began fueling, police said he damaged the pump in such a way that the pump continued to fuel without tracking the dollar amount.
