Throughout September 2023, grease thieves have been targeting restaurants in central and Northern NJ, drilling small holes in used cooking oil tanks and sliding thin hoses through them to suction off grease. When they’re done, they often cover the holes with leaves and debris, in hopes that it won’t be noticed, and they can come back and steal again, even faster, as the tank gets refilled. The holes look like this:
Due to the smaller hoses, it likely takes time for these thefts to occur. These particular thieves probably strike late at night, when they’re less likely to be caught.
