PELHAM, N.Y. A Pelham man was the victim of gas siphoning between Thursday at 9:30 p.m. and Friday at 5:45 a.m., police said. The River Avenue resident called the Pelham Police Department Friday at 5:50 a.m. after noticing his car had only a quarter tank of gas when he was leaving for work, police said.
The man told police that he filled up his gas tank at 9:17 p.m. Thursday at the Citgo gas station on Webster Avenue in New Rochelle. He had a receipt for that transaction, which he presented to the officer. After getting gas, he parked his car in his driveway and did not look at it again until leaving for work Friday morning.
