Gasoline tanker stolen in Maryland

Authorities in Maryland say a tanker truck carrying more than 3,000 gallons of gasoline has been stolen.

Kent County Sheriff's Sgt. Glenn Owens says the FBI is assisting with the search. He says nothing about the investigation points to terrorism, but in light of a possible threat linked to the 9/11 anniversary and the proximity to Washington, they are taking precautions.

The truck has an Alger Oil logo on the tank. It was stolen in northeast Maryland Monday or early Tuesday.

Alger services the upper Eastern Shore and Harford County in Maryland, northern Delaware and southern Pennsylvania. Officials say the delivery trucks aren't usually seen outside the areas they serve.
