Big bucks in used oil

Monday, January 21, 2013

You might think used cooking oil is something to dump -- not steal.

But crooks are finding bucks in the fry oil.

Authorities in suburban Washington report thieves are going after containers of the old oil behind restaurants in northern Virginia.

The fry grease is reprocessed for use in biodiesel fuel.

A Prince William County police spokesman tells a local news radio station that they've arrested one suspect and are looking for another.

Police have gotten multiple oil theft reports since early last year.
