Investigators with Guelph police say a man drove up to a gas station on Speedvale Avenue in a stolen Kia SUV on June 2.
He reportedly pumped some gas and tried to pay using several prepaid credit cards which only covered a fraction of the cost.
The man apparently told staff he would get another credit card from the vehicle but instead sped away without paying.
