INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Police made an arrest in a local business robbery, where a thief stole 10 steel tanks full of flammable gas.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officials confirmed to 24-Hour News 8 that an arrest was made on Wednesday. However, they couldn’t release additional details about the suspect.

On Sunday night, security cameras captured a man stealing the tanks from Ferrer Mechanical Services around 8:30 p.m.

Owner Kris Griffith said workers for the company use the gases as a torch to weld pipes. He said this is the fourth time thieves struck his business in the past year.

Griffith estimated the theft will cost about $2,000.
