SOUTH COLUMBUS (Jen French)Businesses say a burglar took off with several propane tanks overnight. One store caught the crime on camera.
The Express Beverage Center Drive Thru and Pick & Go Market were hit Saturday. Police told the managers that the crimes may be linked.
"From what the officer said--he said it's kind of a common thing. They'll take them, Jeff Whitt said, manager of the Express Beverage Center Drive Thru.
13 tanks were taken from the Express Beverage Center Drive Thru on Williams Road. Thieves took all of the tanks at Pick & Go Market on East Main.
Though its not known why someone took them, Whitt said officers speculate the fuel could be used for a meth lab.
"It's disheartening. You're trying to make a dollar and make an honest living and people try to take that from you, Whitt said. "It goes down to the consumer. It starts hurting the prices, you know?"
