Enfield police seek public's help with gas theft case

Posted December 27, 2012

— Enfield police are requesting the public’s help in solving a credit card fraud and theft case.

Officers are searching for the owner of a black 1990s model Ford F150 extended cab truck. The truck was last seen with a large red Christmas bow attached to the front grill and a smaller red bow on the antenna. There is damage to the paint on the right side of the hood, and an aluminum tool box is in the bed.

A security camera photo shows numerous five-gallon cans in the bed of the truck, which police said was used to haul more than $300 worth of gasoline purchased with a fraudulent credit card.

Anyone with information is asked to call Enfield police at 252-445-3122 or Halifax County Crime Stoppers at 252-583-4444. Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to an arrest, and callers may remain anonymous.
