Police said when the manager attempted to confront the driver of a green Ford F-250, the driver drove away.
Investigators said the manager was able to get a photo of the license plate.
When the manager went to look at the pumps, he noticed the “tamper tape” on one of the pumps had been removed and a device had been placed inside.
Police said the thieves stole about 400 gallons of diesel worth almost $2000.
During the thefts, two men believed to be connected to the thefts were caught on video entering the store.
