Two Kansas City organizations discovered damage Friday morning after gas thieves hit vehicles at their Midtown offices.
At the Kansas City chapter of the American Red Cross on Armour Boulevard., gas was siphoned from two of the organization's vehicles in the parking lot. Volunteers driving to Florida to help for Tropical Storm Isaac made the discovery.
Damage was limited to the gas tanks, but firefighters had to clean off the gas-soaked parking lot.
A couple blocks away at the Salvation Army, a custodian discovered someone drilling a hole into a gas tank around 6 a.m. He was scared off without getting any gas.
No one has been caught. Contact Kansas City police if you have any information.
