The holidays are here and shoppers are out (and in) in full force. It seems as the years go by, online shopping is becoming the ideal way to get your loved ones, and yourself, gifts for the holidays.

What is even more disturbing is that someone would have had to take the gas pump apart to hide the device inside where it was found. Investigators say that the management and employees were not involved. So how did this person do this without having record of it in the More >
