RI Police Officer Busted for Stealing Gas

It's much easier with a badge


Pawtucket—A veteran Pawtucket police officer is accused of stealing gasoline from the city.

Officer Ken Provost, who patrolled the streets of Pawtucket for 30 years, surrendered at state police headquarters Wednesday and was charged with stealing about $700 worth of gasoline from city pumps.

Provost's arrest followed an NBC 10 I-Team investigation that revealed strange patterns at city gas pumps.
