I live on the corner of 22nd Ave W andDravus Street. Last night, between 9:30pm and 5am, somebody attempted to siphon gas out of my gas tank. The person must have gotten spooked, because they left the tube in my gas tank as well as the nozzle and an empty Pittsburgh Steelers backpack. They managed to get my gas tank door open (which has a locking mechanism) and chipped the paint in the process. The police came and took the evidence, but I just want to warn readers to stay on the lookout. I’ll be buying a locking gas cap…

Thanks for the heads up!
