Men Arrested In Elaborate Gas Theft

Police in Madison County captured two suspects today in an elaborate plot to steal gasoline.

Investigators say back on August 12th, Jeffrey and Christopher Lawson used special equipment, hidden in a horse trailer, to take nearly 500 gallons of gas from an underground tank.

It happened at a BP Gas Station, just off I-75 at exit 95 in Madison County.

Investigators used surveillance video to identify the suspects.
Both were arrested Monday and face theft charges.
