Rome man charged after alleged gas station drive-offs

Posted

ROME — A Rome man has been charged with two gas station drive-offs from separate Stewart's Shops in Rome, according to the Rome Police Department.

Police said Celestino Fonseca, 43, of Rome, filled up his vehicle with $50 worth of gas and then $60 worth of gas from both the Stewart's on Floyd Avenue and the Stewart's on Erie Boulevard in late April, on two separate occasions. Both times, police said Fonseca drove off without paying for the gas — and store employees captured his vehicle and license plate.

Fonseca was eventually located and pulled over by Rome Police around 12:30 a.m. Saturday. Fonseca is charged with two counts of petty larceny, police stated. He is scheduled to appear in Rome City Court.
