Repeat Gasoline Huffer Arrested in Britain

Via Opposing Views:

A British man is so addicted to inhaling gasoline that he has been “sent to prison due to his inability to stay away from fuel pumps.”

On December 30th he was caught twice trying to steal gasoline from local stations. He was arrested, sentenced to 16 months in prison, and ordered to pay $180 to cover damages he caused to the equipment.  

The article notes he tried to get help for his addiction in the past but at one point he was “turned away because he wreaked so strongly of gas that he was deemed a fire hazard.” At one point in previous years he had “sneaked on to the same forecourt 51 times to steal fuel.”  The article also notes that according to Addiction Treatment magazine, inhalant abuse is on the rise.
