ROCK HILL, S.C. -- A bizarre theft has Rock Hill police searching for 200 gallons of grease.
Police said thieves pried open waste containers behind the Wing King Restaurant on Wednesday and pumped out the used cooking oil.
It’s the second time in two days that a restaurant reported a similar theft in Rock Hill, police said.

“People are doing everything they can to earn extra money, make extra money,” Wilson said. “One man’s trash is money for someone else.”...

Actually, I am all for that. I'll even leave my hand-held shovel so they can directly remove it from the lawn.
