Grease thief manhunt underway in Boston

June 7, 2012 |

In Massachusetts, police are searching for two suspects who allegedly stole cooking grease from a Boston-area restaurant to sell for biodiesel fuel. The employees at Café Pacific reported to police that while they were closing at approximately 4:54 a.m., they heard noises from the rear of the building.

Upon investigating the noise, the employees spotted two males in an unmarked car siphoning grease from the cooking oil containers. The suspects were described as Hispanic males wearing dark clothing. They jumped into a Ford van when they saw the employees and drove away.

Employees reported that the restaurant sells the used cooking oil to be converted into biodiesel fuel. After the theft, the two full tanks were drained to nearly empty. Police are continuing to look for the suspects.
