Thieves caught stealing gas at Detroit BP station

DETROIT - Gas thieves were caught red-handed Wednesday morning stealing from a BP gas station.

The clerk at the BP station in Detroit said police caught the suspects siphoning hundreds of gallons worth of gas out of the underground tanks and into their van.

The suspects were reportedly using hoses cut from the bottom of the fan that were stuffed down into the ground to get to the gas, WXYZ reported. 

Police and fire crews are trying to figure out how to handle the gas-filled tank.
