Approximately $12,000 worth of diesel fuel was stolen from the Finkburg-based C.J. Miller asphalt manufacturing facility Monday night, according to the Sheriff's Department.
Col. Phil Kasten of the Carroll County Sheriff's Department said that unknown suspects removed approximately 3,000 gallons of fuel from two tanks.
Billy Miller, vice president at C.J. Miller, Inc., said that the company's video surveillance system caught the large white truck on camera but the license plate is not visible.
Miller said the suspects took pins out of the gate at the entrance of the facility and removed the gate. He said they entered the facility around 10:30 p.m. and didn't leave until 11:30 p.m.
Kasten said the Sheriff's Office is investigating. He said there are no suspects at this time and he is unaware of any other recent fuel thefts in the county.
