Crooks caught on camera stealing diesel fuel in North County

SAN MARCOS - Investigators are looking for thieves who have been caught on surveillance video stealing hundreds of dollars of diesel fuel from trucks at a San Marcos business.

"I don't have the heart to do this to somebody", said business owner Manny Jimenez while watching a replay of the crime.

Jimenez showed 10News the security video of a man stealing diesel fuel from his company trucks. Jimenez owns a ShredEx, a company that disposes of sensitive documents. He owns several big trucks with 100-gallon tanks that cost more than $400 to fill up.

Jimenez says he’s been hit at least three times.

San Marcos police say a silver-colored Toyota Rav4 seen in the security footage hauling 50-gallon containers was also spotted ripping off a trucking company in Vista.
