State police in Derby are asking for the public’s help in locating a man who forgot to remove the gas nozzle from his car in Brighton, broke the hose while leaving the pump area and then left the scene without saying anything when he realized what he’d done. The incident happened at the Irving station on Cross Street on Tuesday afternoon about 2. Trooper Lindor is investigating. She provided video surveillance camera images that show the man responsible. One of the images shows the man walking behind his car near the pumps with a gas hose on ground and the gas nozzle inside his car’s gas tank. Without alerting employees at the station, the man took the nozzle out of his car, placed it on the ground and drove off. Trooper Lindor said the offense is vandalism. Anyone who can identify the man responsible or has information related to the incident is asked to contact Trooper Lindor at 802-334-8881.
