One gas station customer in Kendall took matters into his own hands after being told he couldn’t get a refund.

In a video released by Miami-Dade Police, an unidentified man puts money into a vacuum at a gas station, located at 6776 SW 177th Ave., and realizes it isn’t working. After going inside for help, the man learned from a store clerk that he’d have to call a private company to receive a refund.

The video shows the man walking back outside, tying a rope from his truck’s rear axle to the vacuum, then driving forward, pulling the vacuum from the ground. He then gets out, unties the rope, and drives off.

Police ask anyone with information about the man’s identity to call Crimestoppers at 305-471-TIPS. He’s described as a bald white male between 40 and 50 years old, roughly 5-foot-7 and 170 pounds.
