Scam At Bronson Gas Station

2017-09-11

(BRONSON) – Bronson Police Chief Stephen Johnson says his department is looking for the person who scammed a gas station of money.

Johnson says around 1:45 Friday morning, a man entered the Shell Station, claiming to be an employee of a propane company. He said he needed to restock the propane exchange and that the store owed $225 in cash for the new filled tanks.

The suspect received the money, presented a receipt to the gas station employee and then left the area. Surveillance video shows the man getting into a small size red pickup and driving away. There may have been another person in the truck. The man did not drop off or take any propane tanks.

The suspect is a white man in his 40's or 50's. His hair and mustache are both gray. Police say he was wearing a black hat with a white Nike symbol, dark blue jeans, a blue Old Navy sweatshirt along with black sneakers that had white on the bottom.

If anyone has information on this crime, they are asked to call the Bronson Police Department at 517-369-9063.
