Trucker ordered in for theft of diesel

A commercial trucker was ordered into court on a theft charge Tuesday morning.

Christopher B. Eby, 53, of Unionville Center, Ohio, is accused of driving off in his rig about 8 a.m. after pumping $900 worth of diesel fuel at Fuel Mart, 404 N. Urbana Lisbon Road, according to a Clark County sheriff’s report.

Eby’s rig was stopped by Huber Heights police at the Interstate 70 and 75 interchange.

He told deputies the line at the fuel station was long and he didn’t want to be late to his drop-off and that he intended to return to the business at a later date to pay. STAFF REPORT
