Man Put Gas And Drove Off Without Paying 23 Times At Same Gas Station Chain!

A man in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, was arrested last week after a gas drive-off. What’s weird about that? Well, it wouldn’t be if it was a one time offense, but Karl R. Kinyon did the same thing… 23 times at a number of different Kwik Trip gas stations! According to a police report, he claimed to have had permission to do so.

Herald Times Reporter states that 37-year-old Kinyon pumped $43 worth of gas into his blue Dodge Grand Caravan on Monday afternoon and left without paying. Kinyon’s brazen theft was captured on CCTV and police were able to quickly track him down.

This wasn’t the first time Kinyon had made off with gas without paying. In fact, police soon discovered that this was his 23rd gas drive-off from Kwik Trips and that he’s still yet to pay for 14 of them and owes Kwik Trip about $800. These drive-offs occurred five times at Green Bay stores, one at the Bonduel store, three at Ashwaubenon stores, one at a De Pere store and one at the Kwik Trip on South 42nd Street in Manitowoc.

While speaking with officers, Kinyon claimed that he was “in a hurry to get to court and didn’t pay for the gas”. He asserted that he had established a “lay way” system with Kwik Trip that allows him to fuel up for free “as long as he pays eventually”.

Kinyon was taken into custody on suspicion of retail theft, two counts of misdemeanor bail jumping and felony bail jumping.

    What kind of dumb gas station let’s you pump before you pay?

    There are still countries where people have some decency and common sense not to drive-off without paying at gas station. I also live in such country and it is normal. Everyone knows that cars are registered, cameras are everywhere, so it does not make sense. But I guess in many less developed countries people are so stupid and arrogant that they would still do it. But because of these people, the rule of paying in advance spreads across all countries. Because gas stations are getting quickly bored with necessary arrangements when arrogant tourists from less developed countries steal the gas.
