PORT ST. LUCIE — A 20-year-old woman was arrested on a felony charge after police say she absconded with gas 10 times from a business on Northwest California Boulevard, according to an affidavit released Wednesday.
Dauzree Arlanne Morticia, of the 5500 block of Northwest East Torino Parkway in Port St. Lucie, was arrested Tuesday by Port St. Lucie police on a grand theft charge in connection with the incidents at Murphy USA in the 100 block of Northwest California Boulevard.
Police on Tuesday spoke to a district manager, who said that on 10 occasions since Aug. 4, a woman in a silver Ford Taurus has fueled her vehicle and driven off. The manager gave police 10 surveillance DVDs and other reports, and said the total amount of pilfered gas is $366.51.
An employee told police he's spoken to the woman and told her that she has to pay. Instead, the employee said, she "just drives off."
Employees eventually were able to get the tag of the woman's vehicle.
Police say the tag is assigned to a silver Ford Taurus and is registered to Morticia.
Contacted by police, Morticia agreed to return to the gas station. When told about the surveillance videos and other reports, she raised her hands and said she had no excuse.
She offered to pay for the gas in two payments, but the district manager wanted to pursue criminal charges.
