Thieves take cooking oil from Ga. restaurant

VILLA RICA, Ga. — Authorities in Villa Rica say can’t recall a theft quite like the heist of several gallons of cooking oil from a fried chicken restaurant.

Police tell WXIA-TV that two people early Saturday morning backed a truck up to the 55-gallon drums where employees dump used cooking oil from the Big Chic restaurant. Authorities say the suspects used a hose to siphon the oil from three drums.

Surveillance video shows a moving van with the words “Pacific Moving and Storage” on the side of the truck.
