It's the kind of thing that can ruin a person's day, not to mention their carpet.

Police in New Castle County, Delaware say an apartment building near Wilmington was flooded Friday when someone stole a washing machine hose to siphon gasoline from cars.

The hose supplied water to a washing machine in the laundry room at the building.

Water ran for more than two hours, and several inches of water collected in the laundry room and four apartments.
