Some gas guzzlers in Dallas have nothing to do with oversized vehicles.Police are looking for the person who used a remote device to activate a gas pump, then allowed about 15 vehicles to fill up after the station had closed for the night.

Investigators believe the theft involves about 350 gallons of gasoline and the activator allowing people he or she knows -- to fill up, for a fee.

Authorities believe the person who organized the theft early Thursday is involved in the fuel industry.

Security video from the station is being reviewed by Dallas police.
