Who's trying to ruin convenience store?

April 26, 2007

Dawson --  It's pretty clear now that someone is trying to sabotage the Petro gas station in Dawson.  

Someone placed a half page ad in the Citizen News in Shellman, offering ten dollars worth of free gasoline at the Petro Friday. But Petro didn't place the ad.  

Police are investigating to determine who's trying to sabotage the station. Earlier this week, a dozen motorists stalled their cars after filling up at the Petro. Turns out there was water in the station's gasoline pumps. Police are still investigating that, too.

The station owner, Raj Darira, says he will honor the ad and give out free gas to the first 200 people who show up at 9 am. He says he'll win this war of sabotage by being good to his customers.
