The price of gasoline continues to rise and someone in Clarksville apparently found a creative and costly way to steal it undetected.
Clarksville Police were called to the Trenton Road BP around 8:15am Friday after a good Samaratan pumped a full tank of gas and got a receipt with all zeros. He went inside and showed the clerk that he had not been charged for any of the gas and that’s when the clerk discovered that someone had broken into the pumper to manipulate the technology.
Police believe it was done sometime Thursday night, but the station couldn’t say how many people had gotten free gas through the overnight and early morning hours. The BP was out at least 27-hundred dollars in losses from damage to the pump and stolen gas.
No suspects are listed on the report.

The victim is listed as 32-year old Alisha Monk of Hopkinsville.
An attempted home invasion on Sanderson Drive Sunday night ended with the alleged perpetrator going to the hospital after the home owner fought back and shot him in the face.
The incident happened around 10:45 at 600 Sanderson, where 41-year old Byron Williams was at home with his wife and child when they heard someone apparently trying to force their way inside a back door.
A struggle ensued between Williams and the perpetrator, according to Hopkinsville Police Sgt. Mary Holland, who says Williams fired his gun into the suspect’s face when he saw the suspect reach for his waist band.
Sgt. Holland says the perpetrator did, in fact, have a gun on him when crews arrived at the scene. The would-be perpetrator was flown to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he came out of surgery early this morning.
An arrest warrant against the alleged burglar is expected to be filed sometime early this week. Police have declined to release his name at this time.
