( 4UMF NEWS ) Man Steals Gas From Cop Car:
“We was just standing there and thought it would be funny to take a picture and then post it on Facebook,” he said.
Both Baker and his girlfriend, Joann Sandelin, insist the photo was meant as a joke.
“I mean, if we was going to steal gas, we wouldn’t put it nationwide on Facebook,” Sandelin told the station. “We don’t steal anyway, but we’re sorry.”
But Baker told the station he’s not sorry — and he did actually steal.
“I got a little bit of gas,” he told WYMT. “I ain’t gonna lie, but not much. I couldn’t get much. I tried, but there wasn’t much in it.”
The photograph has since been removed from Baker’s Facebook profile.
Jenkins Police Department is now looking into lockable gas caps, according to WYMT.
