A joint investigation by several East Texas law enforcement agencies resulted in the arrest of a 20-year-old Corrigan man in connection to a series of gasoline and diesel thefts at numerous locations in Nacogdoches and Cherokee counties.

Zacorian Deandre White is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail on two theft of property between $1,500 and $20,000 charges and an unauthorized use of a motor vehicle charge, all state-jail felonies. Collectively, his bail has been set at $17,500.

According to a press release from the Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office, reports had been made to authorities about gas and diesel being stolen from Nacogdoches ISD, Martinsville ISD, Garrison ISD, Chireno ISD, Woden ISD, Alto ISD, and Cherokee County. Authorities also believe there could have been more thefts that have not been discovered yet.

Investigators obtained descriptions of the vehicle and trailer that were used at different locations to pump fuel into barrels. The fuel was then sold on the street at a much lower cost, the press release stated.

After that information was given out to patrol officers, a Nacogdoches Police officer made a traffic stop on a vehicle matching the description. Deputies from the NCSO then determined that the vehicle appeared to be the same one used in the fuel thefts.

In addition to White, two juveniles were arrested at the scene on unrelated charges. After his arrest, White allegedly confessed to all of the fuel thefts.

The agencies involved in the investigation include the Precinct 4 Constable's Office, NISD Police, Garrison Police Department, Garrison ISD Police, Nacogdoches Police Department, and the NCSO.
