MOULTRIE — Two Moultrie gas stations reported they were the victims of two gas drive-offs each Wednesday.

Police reports said an attendant at Jack Rabbit Foods on Highway 319 South reported an unknown person pumped $25 in gasoline at 1:48 p.m. Wednesday and left without paying for it. The attendant described the vehicle as a white king cab truck, possibly a Dodge Dakota, with a tree in the back, driven by a white male with a second unknown person inside.

She could not provide officers, however, with the vehicle’s tag number, reports said.

The same attendant reported a second drive-off when an unknown person pumped $59.48 in gasoline at 2:08 p.m. Wednesday and left without paying for it. Reports said the attendant told officers the white female driver came into the store after the pump would not accept her credit card but left the store after the card was rejected.

A witness found the discarded credit card, and reports said officers were able to obtain the name of a suspect. Officers were also told the female driver was caught on the store’s surveillance tapes.

An attendant at Inland on First Avenue Southeast reported an unknown person pumped $43.66 in gasoline at 1:54 p.m. Wednesday and left without paying for it. Reports said the attendant described the vehicle as a white, four-door sedan driven by a white male.

The attendant, however, could not provide officers with the vehicle’s tag number, reports said.

An second attendant at Inland reported two unknown persons pumped $35.08 in gasoline at 11:36 p.m. Wednesday and left without paying for it. Reports said the attendant described the vehicle as a white Ford Mustang with a rag top with two white males inside, but she was unable to provide officers with a tag number.

A Colquitt County sheriff’s deputy pulled over a Ford Mustang matching the description given by the attendant, but reports said she could not positively identify the two white male suspects inside the vehicle.
