String of oil thefts strike Rockdale
Placeholder Image

A rash of oil thefts came through Rockdale in late November from restaurants throughout the county.

The Quick chick at 1435 Klondike Rd, Orient Express at 425 Sigman Rd, Pa Pa Jacks on 427 Sigman Rd and Main Moon oat 1573 Highway 20 North were all robbed of their used frying oil

According to reports, 2,200 pounds of oil worth $300 dollars were taken in two fashions: cutting the three locks found on the container holding the lid down, and prying up on the lid to bend it and siphoning the oil out of the container.
The thefts accord between 12:30 p.m. on Nov. 22 and 12:30 p.m. on Nov. 24.

All the barrels are owned by Darling International which, along with the restaurants lost money because they receive a rebate for the oil.

The suspects are still unknown.
