MILTON, N.Y. — The Saratoga County sheriff's department tells NEWS10 they're looking for so called “gas bandits” whom they say are targeting certain models of pickup trucks and stealing the gas right out of the tanks.

Police say they are investigating more than 20 cases – and the holes cannot be patched, so, the truck owners must pay about $500 to $600 for a brand new gas tank.

Police are urging people to keep an eye on their vehicles and secure them inside a garage if possible.
