What I want to know is how these guys got caught.
at stations, dipping the tanks has to occur daily and reconciliation logs that fall outside of the normal parameters will surely cause a 'fuss' for the dealer

Greed was not good for these clowns, should have grabbed their device and went on down the road...

i didnt think mexicans were that bright. huh, go figure.

Yeah if they'd have built it they'd have been smart enough to go smaller and target geographically diverse locations. Spending 20 mins @ a pump and paying for $30 of gas is a major red flag. Even pump attendants are not that dumb that they wouldn't question that.

Pull up at night in a van with floor access over the stations fill tank.
Lift the metal cover, unscrew the cap, drop in a hose and pump.

Didn't the video say you have to open the pumps and wire this device into it, and open it again to retrieve the device? That's a pretty bad weak point, hard to hide that.
