    When Stealing Gasloline, Don't Use A Lighter As A Flashlight

    Police: Man stealing gas uses lighter to check on progress

    A tip for would-be gasoline thieves: When stealing gas in the dark, don't use a lighter to see how you're doing.

    Authorities say that's what one man did when he was siphoning gas from a dump truck at a business in the Adirondacks.

    The sheriff's department says he was transferring the fuel from the truck to a gas can when he used a lighter to see how full the container had become. That sparked a fire that caused minor burns to his face and hands. The fire spread to a nearby forklift, which was destroyed in the blaze.

    The man's been charged with petit larceny and criminal mischief. It was his second arrest in a month for stealing gasoline from businesses in the town of Thurman, about 65 miles north of Albany.
