Store employees gave chase and officials said they lost Sanchez after he jumped a fence at the west side of the Costco parking lot. …
Witnesses thought the man was running funny and weren’t sure why. Witness Manuel Atlas said, “He looked kind of heavy and out of shape.” Police said Sanchez was also running funny because he still had 15 quarts of oil strapped to him.
Sanchez, who was apprehended roughly eight blocks away, told police that he changes people’s oil for a living, and it had gotten too expensive. Police found 50 more quarts of oil in Sanchez’s care and are trying to determine whether they were also stolen.
