Thieves Steal Used Cooking Grease and Got “$1000 a Night”

Yes, you’ve read that right - used cooking grease. Normally, thieves would look for something lucrative such as cash, jewelries, gadgets because they are easy to carry. But, Alvaro Mendez Flores of Richmond, Virginia, siphoned about 150 gallons of the stinky liquid from a dumpster behind a Burger King for profit.

The police said that he is now facing grand larceny and other charges in connection with the grease theft at the Annandale Shopping Center on April 4.

Charles Gittins, a corporate lawyer and law enforcement liaison for Valley Proteins of Winchester, Virginia said that burglars can make “$1000 a night” out of this illegal business.
