PA Trucker Steals Gas From Other Truckers, Scams Weigh Stations, Turnpikes
Wow. This guy done ticked everybody off...

"Thomas Howard Wambold's tractor-trailer has a split-axle trailer with a modified air system that can lift the axles over toll indicators, with mufflers that can prevent toll collectors from hearing the axles being raised."
How on earth can he do that? Hydraulics system?

Police said Wambold admitted using the E-ZPass after they stopped him for a burned-out license plate light

What a fool! The weight limit on these roads are not there for fun and games. He's lucky he didn't cause a bridge collapse or some other calamity repeatedly driving 17 tons over the weight limit.

The state police regularly did stings, drug sweeps and the like but could not stop the problem. The final straw was when early morning commuters began calling in.
Apparently there was a naked man handcuffed to a tree on the edge of the highway. He had been "playing" with friends and for whatever reason got left behind. So to speak. Anyway, after that they closed the rest stop completely.

Then on top of all that to have one of their own stealing from them? I'm very surprised that this hasn't made the national news yet.

More info here:
"Why don't you like me? Why are you doing this to me and my family?" Wambold asked DeLuca.
ETA: I just forwarded the story to CNN. This deserves national attention.
