Tuesday, November 24, 2020, Atoka County Sheriff Deputy Kody Simpson received a call about a man leaving Rector’s Handy Mart in Lane without paying for fuel.
Upon arriving at Rector’s, Deputy Simpson made contact with the suspect, identified as Kevin R. Holloway, 60, of Farris, who was sitting in his vehicle.
Holloway was ordered out of the vehicle. Deputy Simpson was advised by the store owner, Janet Rector, that Holloway had pulled into the store to pump fuel, then came into the store and began opening food.
Rector said Holloway told her that he could not pay for the food or the fuel, and that he was leaving. Holloway left the store then returned twice, telling Rector that “God would pay for it.”
Deputy Simpson asked the suspect why he did not pay for his fuel and food. Holloway stated, “God would fly them a card.”
Holloway asked the Deputy if he believed in God. The Deputy replied that he did, but God was not going to pay $40.18 for the fuel he had taken from the store.
The suspect responded to the statement by saying that Deputy Simpson “must not believe in God” because he did not believe “God would pay for it.”
Holloway was placed under arrest for pump piracy and transported to the Atoka County Jail. At Rector’s request the vehicle was towed from the property.
He is charged with larceny of gasoline – pump piracy (misdemeanor), and petit larceny (misdemeanor).
