A Clio man is arrested after police say he could be behind dozens of fuel thefts spanning several counties.
Frankenmuth Police responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle in the 7900 block of South Block Road.
That's when officials discovered a red van with 16-five gallon red gasoline containers inside.
The suspect was observed in a nearby field and tried to flee the scene but was caught by police a short time later.
The 52-year-old man is believed to be connected with fuel thefts in multiple counties.
The suspect is being held in the Saginaw County Jail on assault charges from earlier this year.
