PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla., Sept. 7 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said they arrested a woman accused of driving away from one gas station 10 times without paying for the fuel.

Investigators said Dauzree Arlanne Morticia, 20, of Port St. Lucie, was arrested Tuesday on a charge of grand theft after she allegedly filled her tank at Murphy USA and drove off without paying on 10 occasions beginning Aug. 4, TCPalm.com reported Friday.

Police said Morticia, who was recorded by security cameras on all 10 occasions, stole a total $366.51 worth of gas.

Morticia offered to pay for the gas in installments, but the gas station manager decided to pursue charges instead, police said.
