An alleged thief was apprehended for double-dipping an oil purchase, and bilking Le Center’s C-Store out of almost $90 in cash.
Last month, an unidentified male entered the C-Store and told the cashier he bought the wrong kind of oil. He produced four gallons of oil and was reimbursed almost $90. Surveillance video later showed the male subject entering the store empty-handed, and being reimbursed for what must have been oil already belonging to the store.
The same individual attempted another oil refund at the C-Store four days later, again producing four gallons of oil and asking to be reimbursed. When the cashier asked for a receipt, the man said he was not given one and left the store. He was later located in Le Sueur and confessed to both incidents.
