LAPORTE, Ind. — Au­thor­i­ties say an In­di­ana man who robbed a gas sta­tion made off with food, drinks and cig­a­rettes. What he didn’t steal was gas.

The (North­west In­di­ana) Times re­ported that a state trooper ar­rested 33-year-old Sean Har­ris on Wed­nes­day af­ter find­ing him stranded by the side of a two-lane high­way with his ve­hi­cle out of fuel.

Po­lice say the South Ben­darea man’s blood al­co­hol level was above the le­gal limit.

Au­thor­i­ties say Har­ris was ar­rested not long af­ter he en­tered the Lacrosse gas sta­tion, im­plied he had a gun and took the items.

Records show Har­ris is be­ing held in LaPorte County jail.

He made a pre­lim­i­nary ap­pear­ance Fri­day in LaPorte County Cir­cuit Court on a felony rob­bery charge.

At­tor­ney in­for­ma­tion for Har­ris was not avail­able Satur­day.
