Online sentiments vary

Comments from netizens were divided. Although the majority condemned the act and assumed that the man might have stolen the gas tank to buy drugs, others took on a more light-hearted and practical view of the incident.

“Looking at his manner, you can tell that this is what he normally does,” commented one user.

“Desperate for drugs.”

Some users joked about the matter and made playful comments in regards to the man’s desperation.

“Maybe he was cooking and ran out of gas at home hahaha,” said a netizen.

As this incident took place prior to the Raya celebrations, perhaps the man was simply desperate to provide for his family.
