GRAVES COUNTY, Ky. - Sheriff's deputies arrested and charged two people with stealing more than 100 gallons of gasoline from a local gas station.

Graves County deputies responded to "Bob and Ann's Grocery" in Sedalia, Kentucky around 2:30 a.m. Monday.

The caller said two people appeared to be stealing fuel and putting it in barrels in the back of their truck.

Deputies say they met a truck matching the description while on their way to the gas station.

They arrested 33-year-old Dustin Baker and his wife, 27-year-old Brittany Baker, both of Mayfield.

Investigators say they found the two barrels full of gas in the truck along with an electric pump with a hose attached to it.

Both were booked in the Graves County Jail.
