Gas stolen from seven Sioux Falls vehicles in past week

Posted: Updated:

Sioux Falls Police are investigating a string of vehicle vandalism in which gasoline was stolen from SUVs.

Sioux Falls Police Spokesman Sam Clemens said since last week seven vehicles have had holes drilled into them and gas stolen from them. Clemens said all the vehicles involved have been trucks or SUVs parked in apartment complex parking lots.

The first incident was reported January 8 and more were reported this week. Clemens said late Wednesday night into early Thursday morning $20 worth of gas was stolen from a vehicle at 4705 South Oxbow Avenue.

Monday night at 3200 South Theodore Avenue a vehicle was drilled into and $55 worth of gas was stolen. That same night gas was stolen from 4908 South Klein—Clemens was not able to provide how much was stolen.

Other reported incidents came from the 4400-block of West Valhalla Avenue, the 3000-block of South Louise Avenue and another in the 3300-block of West 53rd Street.

Clemens said it is believed that all the incidents have happened at night. Clemens also said the estimated damage to these vehicles have cost from $500 to $2,000.
