Gas Thieves Caught More Than Red Handed

Two Omaha men who were caught siphoning gas were carrying a little bit more than they possibly should have.

According to police reports, officers were called to the Wentworth Apartments near 86th and S last Saturday to investigate a robbery.

When they arrived, a security officer said he saw the two men siphoning gas. Police officers found a siphoning tube hanging out of a vehicle and found a funnel and gas can in the car the two men were driving.

Police also found a black 40 cal. handgun on the driver, 21-year-old Matthew Miller. His passenger, 28-year-old Justin Gruhn was found possession a knife.

A search of the car uncovered methamphetamine, a pipe used for smoking meth, a hacksaw and copper piping scrapes. The two were also booked for theft of the gasoline.

Miller also had four active warrants from three different law enforcement agencies
