Two thieves stole 32 mini propane tanks from a Cheatham County convenient store over a two day period.
The suspects used a battery operated saw to cut off a lock to gain access to the propane tanks at the Sudden Service Shell on Highway 41A most recently just before 1 a.m. Monday.
The pair spends nearly six minutes loading a mini-van with an estimated $2,500 worth of gas before fleeing the scene.
“We're guesstimating that either he is going to heat a home or he is using it in preparation for cooking drugs,” Detective Travis Walker told Nashville's News 2 Investigates.
The suspects' van was last seen traveling towards Clarksville during the early morning hours of Monday.
Anyone with information on the incident is urged to call the Cheatham County Sheriff's Department at 615-792-4341.
