PELHAM MANOR, N.Y. (AP) – Police say someone has stolen more than 1,000 gallons of gasoline from a station in New York’s Westchester County.

Authorities said Thursday that the gas apparently was filched from five pumps sometime last weekend in Pelham Manor. The station values its losses at $4,000 for the gas and $2,000 for damaged pumps. Police will be reviewing surveillance tapes of the station.

On July 15, workers at a convenience store in Lehigh Acres, Fla., reported the theft of 995 gallons of gas. Authorities said the pump was rigged so it didn’t register with the attendant. The sheriff’s office said there were no cameras on those pumps.
