Marietta, GA--

Police in Marietta say they've arrested three men for gas siphoning.

They say the men used garden hoses to steal gasoline from vehicles in apartment complexes in that Atlanta suburb.

One victim said he'd go to bed with a full tank of gas, and in the morning, his gas tank would be empty.

Gasoline prices are now at record highs in the U.S., according to the American Automobile Association.

Police said with gas prices on the rise they expect to see more of this type of crime.
