Thieves stole more than 5,000 pounds of cooking oil at an estimated value of $1,200 from tanks outside a restaurant in Rock Hill, South Carolina.
Police said employees of the Chicken Shak reported two oil tanks behind the restaurant that hold 2,800 gallons each were emptied.
Investigators believe the thieves pumped the oil out of the tanks.
Employees told police that this is not the first time the cooking oil had been stolen.
