]Sacramento Police have reported that the latest trend in thievery is drilling for gas - from gas tanks on local cars - directly from vehicle's gas tanks. And, as Rafer Weigel reports, your car or truck could be next.
Police say that crooks get under cars with a drill and make a hole in the gas tank, draining it. Police say that this isn't a rare occurrence. Thieves have struck several times in the last week the same way, and authorities expect that it will get worse as the price of gas continues to climb.
