LUFKIN, TX (News Release) - Just after midnight on October 30, two men drove away from a Diboll convenience store with hundreds of gallons of fuel without paying, and Crime Stoppers needs your help identifying them.

According to the investigating officer, the suspects manipulated the fuel pumps and transferred approximately $1,000 worth of diesel fuel into the tanks of two semi-trucks. The suspects each drove white truck tractors pulling box trailers; one of the trucks appears to be a Freightliner.

In video captured by the store's security cameras, the suspects appear to be Hispanic males. One wore a striped blue Polo-style shirt, black cargo pocket shorts, and white tennis shoes, and the other had a chinstrap style beard and wore a bright green or yellow T-shirt, brown cargo pocket shorts, and flip-flops. The bright-colored T-shirt had a lion logo on the left chest area; the logo might be that of the Express clothing brand.

In the videos, the suspect in the blue shirt is seen only briefly standing outside the doors to the store, but the other suspect entered the store and approached the counter, providing clear video of his face. Under the Crime of the Week section of www.LufkinCrimeStoppers.com, you can view portions of the store's security videos.

If you can identify the suspects, call Crime Stoppers at (936) 639-TIPS or submit a tip at www.LufkinCrimeStoppers.com. All calls and tips are anonymous and Crime Stoppers may pay a reward if the information you provide leads to an arrest related to this crime.
