It may have worked 11 other times, but it looks like a Halifax man’s luck at the pumps has finally run out.

Halifax Regional Police arrested a 68-year-old man at 8:10 a.m. Friday as he was filling up his vehicle at the Esso gas station at 3600 Dutch Village Rd.

The man stands accused of gassing up and dashing away without paying the service station 11 times since Oct. 24.

On that fall day, police responded to what they called a “gas and go” and said the culprit was caught on camera.

They allege he did the same thing 10 more times until staff spotted him Friday and called police.

The man was arrested without incident and no gas was stolen from the service station in the latest incident, force spokesman Const. Pierre Bourdages said.

Wayne Harvey Martell was expected to appear in Halifax provincial court Friday on 11 counts each of theft under $5,000 and possession of stolen property under $5,000.
