N.C. Man Arrested For Stealing 275 Gallons Of Jet Fuel From Airport
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Police have arrested a man after they found 275 gallons of jet fuel in a storage facility near Charlotte Douglas International Airport.
Mickell Frazier of Charlotte is charged with larceny by employee. Frazier worked for a company at the airport.
It’s not known if Frazier has an attorney.
A police report says officers spotted a truck with airport logos at the storage facility and went to check on it. Inside a locker, police say they found several containers of jet fuel.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police said Thursday they aren’t sure what was planned for the jet fuel, which is a form of kerosene. They say there have been recent thefts of jet fuel in the country by people planning to sell it for use in diesel motor vehicles.
