Two crooks in Needville, Texas, who stole lawn equipment, fuel cans, an air vac, other yard equipment from a private home, were apprehended when the getaway SUV they were driving ran out of gas not more than 100 yards from where they stole the equipment, around 3 o’clock in the morning. They immediately grabbed a gas can from their truck, and began knocking on neighboring doors requesting gas donations. The residents called 9-1-1, and the police were soon on the scene. Twenty-four year old Cody Andel of Guy, Texas and 34 year old Herman Ephran of Wharton, Texas were almost instantly taken into custody. Apparently, the gas can they used for requesting gas, was also stolen by the crooks. When questioned by the police, the men claimed they were out cutting grass (at 3 in the morning). The police did not buy their alibi. Both men already had prior criminal infractions.
