Shocking surveillance video captured a peculiar crime at a gas station in Southwest Miami-Dade.

According to the manager of the Shell gas station, which is located on Eureka Drive just off the turnpike, a man was caught on camera pumping diesel fuel into the bed of his truck. The tank he pours the fuel through was illegally installed to the bed.

The video shows diesel fuel streaming out of the truck's bed. Moments later, it begins gushing out of the bottom of the truck.

A man was caught on camera illegally pumping gas into a tank in the bed of his truck at a southwest Miami-Dade gas station.

When the driver notices the leak, he immediately places the cap on the truck and drives off.

The crime was costly for Willie Leon, the station's manager.

"I had to shut down for almost 2 hours," Leon says. "I had to call the people to clean the floor to come and fix it and clean it because there was diesel all over the station, and people could fall."

Leon added that the suspect used at least two stolen credit cards during the transaction.
