Deputies track down suspect in gas theft

Niagara County Sheriff's deputies caught up with a North Tonawanda woman who pumped $43 worth of gas from a River Road gas station on Thursday morning and drove off.

The owner of the gas station said about 6:20 a.m. Thursday, a woman in a green Monte Carlo buzzed the counter and asked for a pump to be turned on. The woman then pumped $42.88 worth of gas, got in the car and drove off. The owner said her husband jumped in his car and followed the Monte Carlo down the LaSalle Expressway until he could get close enough to get the license plate number.

With the plate number, deputies tracked the car to a North Tonawanda address on Monday and were informed Erin S. Hogan, 31, 198 Bryant St., had been driving the car at the time.

Deputies set up a meeting with Hogan at which point she told them her credit card had been denied, so she asked to have the pump turned on and then drove off without paying. She said she had to be at a clinic in Niagara Falls.

Hogan was charged with petit larceny.
