A Longview resident reported Wednesday a man drilled a hole in the bottom of an SUV's gas tank to steal fuel. 

The caller's mother tried to chase the subject as he fled from the 240 block of Beech Street around 7:20 a.m. 

The caller said the suspect rode off on a bike, carrying a battery and a drill. The man was white and wearing a dirty gray hoodie and brown hat. The bike was pulling a trailer. 

Drilling a hole into a gas tank is dangerous because sparks can ignite the fuel and spark a fire or explosion.
