Thieves Drill for Gas on the Lower East Side

Not all gas bandits are created equal. That situation involving a $10 bill we reported last month was certainly an anomaly. Indeed. We received a tweet yesterday from a Boogie reader who also suffered from a gas theft, but received no such compensation.
According to KV, someone allegedly drilled into the gas tank of his wife’s Ford Explorer and made off with the last quarter of its liquid gold. The car had been parked near the corner of Essex and Stanton Streets. Only after sputtering down the block yesterday morning did they realize what had transpired.
On wed night, my wife’s ford explorer had the gas stolen. Came home from work with 1/4 tank, woke up with 0. The tank was drilled & gas removed. Happened on Essex & corner of Stanton.
Be careful out there. Someone’s drilling for gas!
