HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A Hartford public works employee has been fired following his arrest Tuesday in connection to theft of city fuel.

Police say 54-year-old Tyler Walker of East Hartford stole hundreds of gallons of fuel several times with co-conspirators by filling up a city-owned portable refueling truck.

Supervisors noticed fuel amounts from city pumps were inconsistent and alerted the Hartford Police Department.

He was fired Tuesday and charged with a felony of committing larceny. An attorney for Walker could not be immediately identified.
