We know you have a lot of choices when it comes to watching botched fuel heists every day, and so we want to assure you that the decision to watch this one is a good one. Another way to put it: If you watch one video of a botched fuel heist today, make it this one.
The below happened at a Caltex station in Mount Warren Park near Brisbane, Australlia, last week. In short, the couple was apparently trying to steal gas — and surveillance video captured it all.
It opens with a woman filling up her gas tank:
But quickly an attendant becomes suspicious (you pay for your gas after filling up at that station) and starts to loiter around the vehicle to take a closer look at the woman and her companion’s license plates:
With no warning, the woman’s companion hits the gas with the hose still attached, launching her into the air and sending gas spilling out of the now-detached hose:
Now here’s the video:
But the incredible story doesn’t end there. According to The Australian, the couple actually has thus far gotten away with the crime.
“Investigations are continuing and there’s no charges,” a police spokesman told the outlet.
And apparently it’s an epidemic. The police added that such dine-and-dash-like heists are common in the region.
“It does cost us a hell of a lot of money,” the gas station owner said.
But at least this one provided some laughs, too.
