Police Apprehend Gas Thief Who Brags He Hasn't Paid To Fill Up In The Past Seven Years...
 
While on patrol, Officer Patrick Starrett noticed an occupied vehicle parked in the large shopping center lot adjacent to Hall's Grocery.  The truck was in an inconspicuous spot, and at the time of night, appeared somewhat out of place with the other surrounding businesses, such as the Albertsons or Blockbuster Video Store.  Officer Starrett pulled in to speak with the driver, who told the policeman he was just waiting to meet up at that pre-designated location for a friend.
 
Later that night, at Tuesday, October 7th, as a result of Officer Starrett's alert field identification, three suspects were arrested for the Theft of over 1500 gallons of gasoline stolen from Charlie Hall's gas pumps over the previous four to five days. 
 
Colleyville detectives believe Hall's Grocery was but one of several local service stations that had been hit by the thieves.  The suspects would appear after the business was closed down for the night, and access the shut off gas pumps by turning them back on through a keypad mechanism.  
 
One of suspects listed below, believed to be the ringleader of the trio, bragged to police that he hadn't needed to purchase gas since the year 2001. 
 
Arrested at the scene of the crime were the following suspects:
 
ADAM DURAN WARREN, 24, of 14326 E. Allen Street in Fort Worth.  Colleyville PD - Engage In Organized Criminal Activity; (Larceny Theft Between $1,500 to $20,000).  Arrested at 4200 Glade Road at Halls Grocery by Officer Patrick Starrett at 3:30 AM on 10/07/08.  Warren did not list an occupation.  Posted Bond; released on 10/09/2008.

Allen in Fort Worth.  Colleyville PD - Engage in Organized Criminal Activity; (Larceny Theft Between $1,500 to $20,000).  Fort Worth PD Warrants for Child No Seat Belt, Expired Motor Vehicle Registration.  Arrested at 4200 Glade Road at Halls Grocery by Officer Patrick Starrett at 3:30 AM on 10/07/08.  Stevens listed his occupation as Tire Changer for Discount Tire.  Bond; released at 6:40 PM on 10/07/08.

Halls Grocery is one of the last two remaining pioneer Colleyville family businesses-the other one being Foremans Feed Store.  Charlie Hall, the iconic patriarch of the store, told Local News Only the loss from the gasoline-$4,800-cost him very dearly, "Corporate business just takes a tax deduction.  As you and I struggle to make it in the current market, Theft hits the small business man particularly hard."
.
Detective David Martz is following up the investigation with other police agencies in the area.
