Description


Glendale police fear a spike in fuel thefts last month may signal a growing trend. Nine gas siphoning thefts — most of which occurred in South Glendale and most of which involved SUVs — were reported in July. They involved thieves cutting a vehicle’s fuel line between the tank and filler neck and then sticking plastic tubing into the fuel line to siphon the fuel out.
