Foiled again.. and again.. and again
A defendant carjacked an older gentleman. Wanting to be sure he had plenty of gas to ride around in his new acquisition, the bad guy takes the car to the gas station. This proved to be a source of frustration for the defendant. He pulled up to the pump and realized the tank was on the opposite side of the car... so.. he drove around the pump to the other side. Damn... that tank is still on the other side. So, the defendant got into the car and drove around the tank to the other side. And so on and so on. The bad guy drove in circles around the gas tank four times in an attempt to get it lined up right. Just long enough for the clerk to notice, and call the police.
