Misdemeanor theft charges are pending against a Cookeville man who allegedly admitted to pumping gas at the BP Station on West Jackson Street and then driving off without paying for it. According to a report by Officer Charles Quiett, 19-year-old Brandon Allen Ferguson of Christmas Lane "confessed to driving off without paying" after he was stopped at a nearby intersection. Quiett confirmed that a gas drive-off call had been received from the business and that Ferguson's vehicle matched the description. He issued Ferguson a citation in lieu of arrest.
