A tractor-trailer truck driver is suspected of fueling up his rig and driving off without paying the bill, which came to more than $770, according to a Fort Mill Police report.
The report states on Aug. 15 the man pumped his rig full of diesel at the Love’s truck stop on Sutton Road in Fort Mill. When he attempted to pay the clerk with a credit card, the card was declined, the report states. The man said he lacked another method of payment.
The clerk instructed him to leave the credit card and his truck, call a ride, and return with payment within a few hours. The man agreed, but moments later the clerk told police she saw the truck drive away without paying for the fuel, the report states.
The clerk turned over the credit card and the customer’s ID to police. The truck is described as a green and yellow cab with an orange trailer.
