Driver flees with pipe after filling petrol at RAK pump

By Staff

An Asian man drove into a petrol pump in Ras Al Khaimah and asked the worker to put Dh50 worth of petrol into his car tank.

Once the tank was filled, the driver started the engine and drove away, neat realizing the petrol pipe was still stuck inside his car tank.

Shocked petrol station workers managed to take that car number and gave it to the police, who later arrested the “petrol thief”, according to Alkhaleej newspaper.

It said the man would be sentenced on Tuesday on charges of stealing petrol and damaging public property.
