Gas station drink theft brings OWI arrestJanuary 30, 2020
From Local Sources
WINSLOW — Police arrested a Pike County man on multiple preliminary charges after a Wednesday night incident at the Quick Pick gas station in Winslow.
Pike County’s 911 center received a call at 9:18 p.m. from the Quick Pick reporting a man who had caused a disturbance inside the store exiting without paying for a fountain drink.
The Petersburg Police Department and Indiana State Police arrived to find the man, Kolby Jenkins, 22, Petersburg, still in the parking lot near the gas pumps.
Police said Jenkins exhibited signs of impairment.
A review of the store’s surveillance video determined Jenkins had left without paying for the fountain drink. The video also showed him driving his van into the parking lot and stopping near the gas pumps.
Field sobriety testing revealed Jenkins to be impaired but police said he refused to submit to a chemical test.
Further investigation revealed Jenkins was classified as a habitual traffic violator, meaning he was prohibited from driving, police said.
Authorities booked Jenkins into the Pike County Jail on preliminary charges of Level 6 felony driving while classified as a habitual traffic violator and operating while intoxicated (prior), plus a misdemeanor count of theft.
The Pike County Sheriff’s Office also assisted.
