The Turlock Police Department is searching for the thief who has been using a Turlock business as a personal gas station.

Sew Creative Upholstery and U-Haul, located in the 1400 block of Lander Avenue, has had the gas stolen out of the moving trucks multiple times. Recently the thief struck Monday night and then came back again on Wednesday.

The business was able to capture a shot of the perpetrator’s vehicle and hopes someone may recognize it. The truck is light blue in color and is lowered. It has wide wheels and vertical stripes up the sides of the truck bed.

Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to contact the police department at 668-5550.
