40 Gallons of Fuel Siphoned from Truck at New Canaan Construction Site

Someone stole 40 gallons worth of diesel fuel out of a construction truck last week, siphoning the gasoline over the long Labor Day weekend, New Canaan police reported Monday. 

According to Sgt. Carol Ogrinc, a construction truck belonging to O&G Industries was emptied of its diesel gasoline sometime between Friday, August 30, and Tuesday, September 3, while it was parked along Talmadge Hill Road. 

Ogrinc said a 49-year-old site supervisor reported finding the truck with the gas cap off and showing low fuel on Tuesday at 6:30 a.m. The supervisor reportedly knew the trucks had been filled prior to leaving Friday. 

The gasoline was valued at approximately $170.

Second paragraph: “it’s” should be “its.” Minor detail, but one any writer or editor should know.

Probably a spellcheck thing. Sorry to pick nits. Thanks.

@Jon S.: The application program is spell check or spell checker, sometimes spell-check, not spellcheck. You should have used it!

Thanks, “Dawne,” for your learned opinion. Only difference is, I was commenting on a paid editor’s published work. You’re merely carping on an unpaid reader’s text comment.
