Refinery Workers Busted On Gas Theft Charges

February 15, 2008
Judicial Investigation Police officers arrested two National Oil Refinery employees Monday night who allegedly stole fuel. The individuals, last names Vargas and Rodríguez, are accused of siphoning more than 400 liters of regular gasoline over a period of at least three months.
According to a press release, refinery officials discovered the missing gas problem in October 2007 at the Siquirres gas station, where the individuals worked and turned the matter over to authorities to investigate.
Vargas and Rodríguez worked as a guard and pump operator at the gas station and allegedly transported the stolen gas in their personal vehicles.
