Two men were arrested for allegedly stealing thousands of dollars worth of diesel fuel in Fontana, according to the Fontana Police Department.
On Oct. 26, officers responded to a local gas station regarding two subjects possibly stealing diesel fuel, the P.D. said in a Facebook post.
When officers arrived, they located Jaime Llamas, 41, and Yonar Bello-Lopez, 38, filling two trucks that had altered gas tanks that would hold more than 1,000 gallons each, police said.
After paying the clerk $500 for fuel, they allegedly manipulated the gas pump and received about 2,000 gallons of fuel, valued at more than $15,000.
Llamas and Bello-Lopez were arrested and booked on a charge of grand theft.
âAccording to the company’s corporate investigations department, these subjects and their trucks have been to this gas station doing the same activity before. We believe these suspects have done this numerous times and different gas stations and are looking for additional victims,â the P.D. said on Facebook.
