LITTLE FALLS, Minn. (AP) — Gas thieves aren’t just a problem on land. With the high price of gasoline, they’re also striking on the water.

Morrison County Sheriff Michel Wetzel (MICK’-uhl WET’-zuhl) says his office is receiving reports of gas cans being stolen and gas being siphoned from boats left tied to the end of docks or on boat lifts.

Wetzel reminds boat owners to remove gas cans when they secure their boats for the night.
