Police: Thief Steals 500 Pounds of Used Grease
WILLOUGHBY, Ohio – Police in Willoughby are on the lookout for an unusual thief.
Someone stole more than 500 lbs of used fryer grease from the Red Robin Restaurant in Willoughby, according to police.
A private company that comes out to empty the outdoor grease bin once a month found the bin already empty on Monday. The locked cap on the outside of the grease bin had been broken off.
The only way to remove the grease would have been to pump it out from the cap on the pipe that leads outside of the building, according to Willoughby Police.
The used grease is commonly converted into diesel fuel.
The estimated value of the loss is around $500.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Willoughby Police Department at 440-953-4212.
