2 caught trying to steal grease from eatery: Post

SUNNYSIDE — Two men are facing charges of criminal mischief and attempted petit larceny after allegedly trying to siphon grease from a Chinese restaurant, according to the New York Post.

Domingo Castillo, 26, and Bulmaro Perez, 35, parked their van behind New Grand Buffet on 48th Street at Northern Boulevard at 1:20 a.m. May 1, and were then spotted trying to break into locked containers of used oil, the Post reported.

The pair’s Dodge van was outfitted with receptacles and hoses for the liquid, which is sold and turned into biofuel, the Post said.

A passing truck scared off the suspects, but they had allegedly already done $250 worth of damage, according to the Post.
