Now police cross the country are seeing a different type of gas theft. Rather than steal gas from cars, some thieves are going straight to the source.

According to ABC13 News, thieves use trap doors under vehicles to steal as much as 360 gallons per day from gas stations.

The manager of one gas station in Houston noticed he was losing hundreds of gallons of gas per day. He reviewed his surveillance video and observed an SUV parked over the underground gas tank cover.

The robbers then unlock the cover and vacuum the gas into containers inside the SUV.

The manager told ABC13 the thieves returned three days in a row. On the 4th day he chased them away.

Cases of felony theft from gas stations are occurring all around the country, including Georgia, Virginia and California.

Wilfork discovered the items were missing in May 2020 while moving to a new home, according to the complaint. Wilfork didn't immediately report the items as stolen, because he thought they were in storage at his second home in Florida.

However, a Patriots fan contacted Wilfork, claiming to have acquired Wilfork's championship rings.

The fan told Wilfork he paid $62,000 for two championship rings. The rings were turned over to the Friendswood Police Department after they were reported stolen.

Wilfork is a former NFL linebacker who played 13 seasons in the NFL. He played for the New England Patriots in two Super Bowls. He announced his retirement in 2017 after signing a one-day contract with the Patriots.
