Police are looking for a man they say stole some gasoline and was involved in a hit-and-run crash.
The incident happened on April 26 just before 11:30 a.m.
According to police, the man was driving a silver 2011 Hyundai Accent and stopped for gas in the 100 block of McEwen Avenue, just off Richmond Road near the Sir John A Macdonald Parkway.
Police say the man failed to pay and drove off, and was later involved in a hit-and-run at Regina Lane and Assaly Road, near Lincoln Fields mall.
Police are asking anyone with information to contact them.
