The ‘Robin Hood’ of petrol


KAPAR: When a petrol kiosk owner stepped out to run some errands, his newly hired pump attendant started giving out free petrol.

Someone alerted the owner about an unusually long line of cars at his kiosk, the owner rushed back to discover he had lost about RM3,000 worth of petrol.

According to a kiosk worker, the man in his 30s had asked for a job and was employed at RM12 per day.

“Yesterday (Wednesday) was his third day. Being confident he could do the job, the owner left to pay some bills and within the hour and a half the owner was away, the man gave out free petrol,” the other worker said.

Word of the free petrol spread and people took the opportunity to fill up their tanks.

The man ran off when he saw his employer return. It was later found out that he was mentally unsound.

No police report was lodged.
