SUMMERFIELD, Fla., June 29 (UPI) -- A Florida man was arrested after the drill he allegedly used to put holes in gas tanks to steal fuel was left behind and police found his name etched on it.
Authorities say the Summerfield, Fla., man and his girlfriend are accused of draining several tanks, the Ocala (Fla.) Star-Banner reported Sunday.
John Oldenburg, 44, and Darlene Kimbriel, 39, face grand theft, burglary of a conveyance and criminal mischief charges, Marion County Sheriff's Office records show.
Deputies allege they found a methamphetamine lab at the couple's home, so they also face drug charges.
Deputies say they found a drill with "J. Oldenburg" etched in the tool at the scene of the latest gas heist. Asked why his drill was at the scene, Oldenburg blamed his girlfriend, the newspaper reported.
Kimbriel, meanwhile, accused her boyfriend of drilling for gas while she acted as a lookout.
