With gas more than four dollars a gallon, it should come as no surprise that some folks will resort to anything to fill their gas tanks. Overnight, one Grand Junction man was caught red handed stealing gas from U-Haul trucks.

Around 11 pm last night, police got a call that someone was stealing gas from the trucks on North Ave. Police say when they arrived, they found 53 year old Michael Steven Johnson siphoning gas from one of the trucks.

Police say he had filled one five gallon can and was working on a second. Police say Johnson had six cans in all.

Police tell us he faces misdemeanor theft charges.
