In the "people will steal any damned thing" category, we have this theft of two-and-a-half tons of used cooking oil and grease:
Police in Edmond, north of Oklahoma City, said on Thursday the grease bandits have hit an area of Mexican, Chinese and steak restaurants over the past three months.
I used to work at restaraunts, and I can tell you this stuff reeks. While it's worth money (about $380), one can't help but point out that if the thieves put this much effort into a real job, they'd be a lot better off. Further proof people turn to a life of crime because they're too stupid to do anything else.
