Apparently all they took was motor oil from a convenience store. It was originally shoplifting until confronted and a gun was pulled out. But then they ran out of gas in the getaway car.

Was the getaway car an old Saturn?
That would explain the oil theft.
Converting a misdemeanor that would have brought no time into a felony with a gun spec attached that will surely bring some state time is pretty dumb.

18 year old that used a gun in a crime, he just REALLY screwed up his life and he probably does not even know it yet; just sad.

That and who steals the s___y convenience store oil. Heck most of it probably does not even pass any API test.
