Fill ‘n’ run leaves gas attendant fuming

KRABI: A gas station attendant was forced to pay for a man who filled the tank of his pick-up truck and then drove off without paying yesterday morning.

Harutai Kriangtapong, 25, who works at the PTT petrol station in Krabi Town, had to pay 1,000 baht to cover the cost of the alleged delinquency, which occurred at 7:10am

“A well-dressed man drove into the petrol station and asked me to fill up his Vigo pick-up truck with 1,000 baht of diesel fuel,” Ms Harutai said. “As soon as I finished putting the fuel in his truck, he immediately drove away without paying.”

“I ran after him and shouted for him to stop, but he got away,” she said.

Ms Harutai filed a report with Krabi City Police.

“I hope they find him soon. It may not be a lot of money for some people, but it covers my family’s expenses,” Ms Harutai added.
