Two Florida men were arrested Monday after getting caught stealing 481 gallons of fuel from a 7-Eleven using an electronic device they installed in a gas pump, authorities said.

Deputies responded to the 7-Eleven convenience store at Lofton Square Court in Yulee, for reports of two people with a white flatbed truck stealing fuel from a pump, the Nassau County Sheriff’s Office said.

Investigators learned that suspects Ramon Vila, of Miami, and Silvio Aguila, of Jacksonville, had installed an electronic device into a pump that restricts the flow meter on the computer-activated pump system, which causes the system to understate how much fuel is being pumped. , the sheriff’s office said.

The first theft happened at 4:30 pm, during which the thieves allegedly stole 367 gallons of fuel valued at $1,757.93. The pump only showed a charge of $30 thanks to the electronic device the suspects had installed, officials said.
