RIME STOPPERS CASE No. 1146

Shortly after midnight on Friday, Oct. 21, two men in a small tanker truck drove into the Sonic Drive-in at 110 S. West St. They told employees they were there to collect the grease. They then drained the grease pit into their truck.

The grease is resold and converted into bio-diesel fuel, which increases its value to several thousand dollars. This sort of theft has occurred multiple times in Wichita over the past months at several of the major fast-food restaurants.

The Wichita Police Department is asking you to help to identify these suspects. Both are white, of average height and build, and wearing work clothes.
