Orange County, Fla., officials are preparing an audit of its two largest users of fuel after an employee was caught stealing more than $6,300 in gasoline.

Orange County Sheriff's investigators observed the employee filling up his county vehicle then filling up his personal, portable fuel container on 40 occasions from five locations—two near Orlando, one in Winter Park, and two in Apopka.

"When he was confronted at the pumps, he retired on the spot," Bryan Lucas of Orange County Fleet Management told WFTV.
