For people in a West Virginia community, Madeline Jordan may have been the right person to know.

She worked at a gas station -- where, police say, she would re-set the price at the pumps every Sunday morning, and sell gasoline to family and friends for just a tenth of a penny per gallon.

The owner of the station says he noticed a significant drop in his income, and found receipts that listed the deeply discounted rate.

Jordan is accused of defrauding her boss out of nearly $50,000 over the course of several months.

Also under arrest are her mother, her brother, a cousin and two others. They were arrested after police set up a sting operation at the station in South Charleston.
