FBI Helping Search For Stolen Gas Tanker

(AP)A tanker truck containing more than 3,000 gallons of gasoline was stolen, according to the Kent County, Md., Sheriff’s Office.

The 10-wheel truck bearing an Alger Oil logo on the tank was stolen from Commerce Lane in Worton late Monday or early Tuesday. The truck has Maryland license plates: 310E03.

Alger services the upper Eastern Shore and Harford County in Maryland, northern Delaware and southern Pennsylvania, and officials said the delivery trucks aren't usually seen outside the areas they serve.

The FBI has been alerted and is assisting with the search for the tanker, Sgt. Glenn Owens said. Nothing about the investigation points to terrorism, but in light of a possible terror threat linked to the 9/11 anniversary and the proximity to Washington, they are taking precautions.
