(KMOV) – A man is arrested after being charged with a felony for driving away without paying for gas in Godfrey, Illinois on Tuesday night.
Brett Darr was pumping gas at Moto-Mart located at 5311 Godfrey Road around 10 p.m. when he drove off without paying.
The store clerk gave a description of the 29-year-old man’s vehicle and its license plate number to the Madison County Sheriff’s Office. The information was relayed to the Jersey County Sheriff’s Office since Darr’s vehicle was last seen driving north on Godfrey Road.
Jersey County Sheriff’s Office made the arrest and transported Darr to Madison County Jail where he was held pending formal charges.
Darr already had a conviction of theft in Madison County in 2010 which made this offense a felony.
