Eighth person arrested in fuel theft
ALEXANDRIA - Yet another person is being charged with stealing fuel from a worksite at England Airpark.
Sheriff deputies in Rapides Parish say 18-year-old Matthew Thomas Curd is the eighth person arrested in the case. Curd turned himself in and was booked into the Rapides Parish Detention Center.
The case began October 30 after the theft of more than 500 gallons of fuel from a contractor's worksite was reported. A traffic stop on November 13 led to the first five arrests in the case, with two more arrested weeks after that.
Deputies say the investigation is continuing.
