Gas Theft Spree Busted

By  | 

A teenager is arrested for using a company credit card to pump gas into his friends' cars. Police say 19-year-old Akil Walden of Havana racked up $4,200 worth of gas on the card during a two-week period.

Walden was an employee at All American Ford on West Tennessee Street. Police say he had his friends and relatives meet him at gas stations.

"They would meet him over there and they would pay him between ten and twenty dollars to fill up their car instead of the actual price of 40 dollars or so, so they were getting a cheaper rate by doing this through an employee," said Tallahassee Police OFC John Newland.

Right now an audit is looking into all the transactions. Walden is charged with grand theft and fraudulent use of a credit card.
