Reddick man popped for failing to pay entire fuel bill at minimart

Todd Adam Barkyoumb Jr.

Marion County sheriff’s deputies were called to a Reddick minimart early Wednesday morning when a clerk sought to have two people trespassed from the business.

When deputies arrived at the Circle K, located at 12475 NW Gainesville Rd., the two people, 28-year-old Todd Adam Barkyoumb Jr. and his female passenger, had already left. The clerk said Barkyoumb’s passenger came inside and paid $10 for gas and he actually pumped $60.52 worth of fuel into his vehicle, a sheriff’s office report states.

The clerk told deputies that Barkyoumb was driving a red Chevrolet Avalanche and he provided his license tag number. They ran a computer check and then went to his house at 11420 NW 160th St. in Reddick.

After being read his rights, Barkyoumb told deputies that his passenger paid the clerk while he remained outside pumping gas. He said he continued to pump the fuel until he heard a click and didn’t pay attention to how much had been dispensed into his vehicle, the report says.

The passenger told deputies that Barkyoumb realized he had pumped too much fuel into his vehicle after driving away from the minimart. She said they both knew what had happened but Barkyoumb didn’t return to the Circle K, the report says.

Barkyoumb was taken into custody and charged larceny/driving off without paying for gas. He was released early Thursday afternoon on $500 bond and his next court date hasn’t yet been set.
