Four men were arrested after an officer saw them pumping gasoline at a closed gas station, Oklahoma City police reported Thursday.

Angelo Madril, 32, and Eldmostise Miller, 35, both of Oklahoma City; Jake Eric Rikard, 24, of Las Vegas, and Edwardo Ernest Duarte, 32, of Yukon, were arrested Wednesday on complaints of violation of the Computer Crimes Act, larceny of gasoline and larceny of merchandise, police said.

An officer was patrolling about 1:45 a.m. when he saw vehicles at Metro Quick Mart, 9000 Shields Blvd., according to the incident report.

The officer reported a couple of men were acting as lookout while the others were getting gas from a gas pump that had been shut off for the night.

The pump said $54.89 in gasoline had been pumped into a pickup and three gas containers, according to the report.

Officers found a numerical keypad — similar to the one inside the pump — with connector cords attached, according to the report.

The four men were taken to Oklahoma County jail. Madril is being held for a misdemeanor municipal complaint, and Rikard is being held for another law enforcement agency, jail officials said. Miller and Duarte were released.
