HIGH POINT, N.C. (WGHP) — Authorities in multiple states are on the lookout for a South Carolina man following the theft of hundreds of gallons of gas in North Carolina last month.
According to police, on March 14 around 11 p.m., an estimated 400 gallons of gas was stolen from the Bizzy Bee Convenience Store on N. Main Street in High Point.
Police have identified 28-year-old Khalif Tijee Wells, 28, of Newberry, South Carolina, as a suspect. Warrants for felony larceny have been issued for Wells “with full extradition from South Carolina, Virginia and Tennessee.”
Well is also wanted in Pennsylvania on unrelated probation violation charges.
Security video shared by the business shows the suspect using some kind of electronic device to circumvent security programs and allow pumps to dispense gas without payment.
Detectives are attempting to identify other suspects involved. Once those suspects are identified, additional charges will be issued.
