The incident wasn’t noticed until several days later.
"One of our officers was down at the gas station and noticed damage to the pump and alerted one of the clerks," Shrewsbury Lt. Brian Catlett said.
The incident happened at the Phillips 66 at Landsowne Avenue. Upon review of the surveillance footage, clerks discovered a 2007 Jeep Compass struck a pump. The driver is scene picking up pieces of his damaged vehicle.
“Putting it in the back of his car, and looking to make sure that the guy didn't see him,” a clerk said.
Lt. Catlett said there were no injuries and was grateful the damage wasn’t much worse, especially given the location.
"There have been the incidents where there could be fires and explosions, and things like that,” he said. “We're lucky it didn't reach that point."
Police ran the driver’s license plate and tracked the driver down in St. Charles. The driver admitted his involvement and was issued a citation for leaving the scene of an accident.
