Neb. police arrest 2 from Missouri on grease theft

Submitted By AP Wire Service

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP), May 18 - Police in Nebraska say they've nabbed a pair of suspected grease thieves, thanks in part to the smell of old french fries.

Christy Harris, of Everton, Mo., and Jesse Moore, of Springfield, Mo., are charged with larceny. They're suspected of siphoning used cooking oil from a bin outside a Lincoln restaurant. Police think they may be involved in several other grease thefts.

Some businesses buy used grease for biodiesel fuel.

Harris and Moore were arrested early Wednesday after police stopped a pickup truck hauling a big tank. Officers say the tank smelled like ``old, stale french fries.'' Police say the truck also had no rear license tag.

Harris and Moore were taken to the Lancaster County jail, and later released. Officials had no information on whether they had an attorney.
