    A surveillance camera captured the image of a truck and trailer that was allegedly used to steal 500 gallons of gas from a gas station in Riverside on July 22, 2014.

    Riverside police are searching for the drivers of a white pick-up truck they believe siphoned approximately $2,000 worth of fuel from a gas station using a suction device.

    The suspects pulled their "newer" model, white 4-door Ford-150 and dark-colored horse trailer into the Weis Fuel gas station at 9407 Magnolia Ave. around 4:45 a.m. on July 22.

    The trailer was parked over a tank filling hole at the station. Police believe the trailer had a false floor and an indoor pump that allowed them to steal nearly 500 gallons of gas from the station’s tank.

    According to a witness, the thieves were a male and female and the horse trailer had some sort of “alien sticker” on the outside.
