LOS BANOS — On April 2nd just after 3 AM, officers arrived on the 2800 block of Pacheco Boulevard to investigate reports of fuel theft.

They began with checking a business in the area only to discover 34-year-old Paul Glaser of La Maradia hiding in the bushes. Officers noted several plastic gas containers and a plastic hose in his possession, as well as several other containers near commercial vehicles parked at the business.

Glaser was handcuffed and placed in a patrol car. Meanwhile, officers continued checking the area and ran across 41-year-old Marcus Glaser of La Maradia also hiding in the bushes. Marcus was less cooperative and had to be pulled from the bushes before being cuffed.
