Crooks Rack Up Big Bill After Stealing Fresno FOX Affiliate’s Gas Card

Fresno police are trying to figure out who stole a station credit card from Fresno FOX affiliate KMPH and used it to pay for over $1,400 in gas.

According to the station, the thieves used the gas card at the same station several times.

Surveillance video from several gas stations show at the time the stolen credit card was used, a group of people were at the gas station filling up several cars.

Jim Moore, KMPH Fox 26 Chief Engineer says, “$1,400 is a lot of money. When you look at what it takes to operate a vehicle for a year. It’s money that could have gone into maintenance, camera repair, and other productive ways.”

KMPH Fox 26 did file a police report and plans to turn over the surveillance evidence, including the license plates of the cars in the video to financial crime detectives.

Meteorologist Leaves WPTZ for BBQ

After more than a decade with WPTZ, meteorologist Jim Moore is leaving the NBC-affiliate for a BBQ restaurant.

Moore, who works WPTZ’s morning newscast, has decided to exit the TV business and open a Dickey’s Barbecue franchise in the area.

“There is no good barbecue in the North Country,” Moore said recently of the Plattsburgh, NY/ Burlington, VT market.

“Jim’s been a rock for our morning team over the years,” WPTZ news director Sinan Sadar said, in announcing Moore’s departure. “His enthusiasm has been a great asset in front of as well as behind the camera. He will be missed.”

The station plans to announce Moore’s replacement soon.
