Police Arrest Gas Buyer

So much for free markets in America.

Police arrested a 47-year-old New York man accused of filling up 30 five-gallon Home Depot buckets with gasoline on Saturday night, reports NBC.

According to investigators, Yunus Latif, of Richmond Hill, collected money from his neighbors, bought gas at a Valero station in Orange and planned to bring it back to his neighborhood, where they had no power and gas.

Get this.

NBC says the owner of the Valero gas station, located at 347 Boston Post Road, was arrested as well.

Police claimed Muniruzzaman Gomosta should have known what Latif was doing since he came into the store several times to pay for buckets of gasoline.

Both men were issued a misdemeanor summons for violation of regulation concerning flammable or combustible liquids.

The gas was returned to underground storage tanks, police said.


  1. Nope, no being a leader outside of government dependency. Somehow I don't think that the gas was the problem. It's being independent from government.

  2. Government in a nutshell.

  3. How dare that good neighbor help out and take charge for the safety of his community. What a travesty. Big brother is supposed to take care of us cradle to grave. We can't be having people doing this. Big brother won't be able to justify its existence otherwise.

  4. I'm curious how the totalitarian scumbags were tipped off.

    1. They're checking vehicles coming back into the city. Stopped his car, looked in the back, saw the buckets, smelled the gas... Busted.

  5. Some brainwashed hamster ratted, I guess. Crises do tend to bring out the true colors of the folks, and snitching has been one of American favorite pastimes for quite a while now.
