Between June 1 and June 13, someone made off with between 600 and 1,000 gallons of diesel from trucks parked at a Yellow Freight lot near Athens, GA.

The Athens Banner-Herald reported that a truck driver for the company saw a man he knows, a former employee of the company, at about 4 a.m. Friday, June 13, with a truck that had a pump on its bed. The driver said that diesel was spilled on and around the truck and that the man in question had the code to unlock the truck lot.

Police have not yet released the name of the suspect, and no arrests had been made as of Monday.
