Investigators say man stole gas from a mine

Investigators say a Pike County man stole hundreds of gallons of gas from a Floyd County mine.

Floyd County Sheriff's Deputies say NFC Mining had gasoline thefts for more than three months.

Sunday night, deputies say they caught Danny R. Stewart of Elkhorn City pumping diesel fuel from the mine into tanks and a 55 gallon drum on his truck.

"We were there, had men waiting, and the guys pulled up and loaded about 200 gallons of diesel fuel, off road fuel, and took off with it. When they left, we stopped them, and arrested them and brought them to jail," said Deputy Greg Clark.

Stewart is charged with theft.
