Firemen guilty of stealing gas


Two Grady County volunteer firemen were convicted in Superior Court this week of felony Theft By Taking, for stealing the department's gas. 

Marcus Lee and Quardell Johnson were charged with taking gas from the county for their personal vehicles. 

They were each given five years probation, and forced to reimburse the county for the $3,406 in gas that went missing over the course of the year. 

GBI agents investigated the matter after it was discovered that the county fire department gas cards were being used for unleaded fuel when the fire trucks used diesel.
