Gas drive off leads to chase in Oronoco

Posted:

ORONOCO, Minn. (KTTC) -- A gas drive off led to a wild chase in Oronoco.

The Olmsted County Sheriff's Office reports a clerk at Casey's General Store witnessed a man acting suspiciously while pumping gas at about 2:30 a.m. on Feb. 3.

After he was finished, he got into his car, and drove off without paying.

The sheriff's office says the clerk got into her personal car, and chased the man down.

The man realized he was being followed, and nudged the clerk's car into a snow bank.

Deputies say she called 911 but the driver got away.
