Police are looking for a man they’ve dubbed “Mr. Fill n’ Fly”, wanted in a string of gas thefts across Southern Ontario. Halton Police say he’s wanted for at least 20 gas thefts dating back to October in Milton, Oakville, Burlington, Haldimand County and even into York Region.

Halton Police say the man has used at least two different vehicles; a black Jeep Grand Cherokee and an older model blue GMC Safari.  He is also using three license plates stolen from Burlington and Hamilton to these vehicles, including BVYZ793, BDXT007 and BCFC942.

Police say he wears gloves and fills up with regular or supreme gas.  On several occasions, he has filled a jerry can as well.

He is described as male, white, 65-70 years old with a medium build, white hair, eyeglasses and wears gloves.

The last known theft he committed, according to Halton Police, was at an Esso station at 2035 James Snow Parkway S., in Milton on August 22nd.

This will be the new normal for Ontario…… thank you premier Wynne. People will resort to stealing when the do not have enough money to legally survive.

People think because someone is older, that they would never do anything like this, but young thiefs just grow up to be older, and better ones!
