Cottage Grove police brief: Woman covers license to steal gas
Cottage Grove Minnesota 7584 80th Street South 55016

A woman tried to steal gas by covering the vehicle’s license plate while pumping fuel in Cottage Grove.

Holiday Gas station, 8101 Hadley Ave., called police April 15 to report a $30 gas drive-off. Someone in the vehicle had covered the license plate while the vehicle was at the station. When it left, the female driver exited the car at a stoplight and removed the item that was obstructing the license plate. Police were able to track down the vehicle’s owner, who provided information on the woman driving it that day. A 25-year-old Red Wing woman was mailed a ticket for theft.
