McCracken County Sheriff’s Office identifies driver accused of backing into gas pump

PADUCAH, Ky. (KBSI) – McCracken County Sheriff’s Office detectives have identified suspects after a driver backed into a gas pump at a convenience store.

Deputies with the McCracken County Sheriff’s Office responded to the Five Star Convenience Store on John Puryear on April 4 after a complaint of a driver who backed into a gas pump and then drove away.

After looking at surveillance video footage, a white passenger car that appears to be a new model Chevrolet Malibu pulled up to the pump and got fuel.

The female driver appeared to be under the influence of an intoxicating substance, according to the McCracken County Sheriff’s Office.

The driver pulled the car into a parking spot near the business. Three passengers in the vehicle exited the vehicle and entered the store.

When the passengers return to the vehicle, the driver backed into a gas pump and drove off, according to the sheriff’s office.

That caused about $3,000 in damage to the pump.

The driver is described as a white female with long dark hair. She wore a dark gray shirt and light gray pants. The other two females and the male were passengers in the vehicle.

The sheriff’s office asks for the public’s assistance identifying the driver of the vehicle or any of the passengers.

The Chevrolet Malibu should have damage to the rear passenger’s side of the vehicle.

If anyone has information to the identities of the driver, passengers, or vehicle, contact the McCracken County Sheriff’s Department at 270-444-4719,, or your local law enforcement agency.
