3 Charged in Alleged Theft of Used Cooking Oil

BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) - Three men have been charged with felonies in southwest Illinois for what police say was the theft of 10,000 gallons of used cooking oil.

According to the Belleville News-Democrat, 32-year-old Bo Lin of Fairview Heights, 25-year-old Tuo Li of Chicago and 30-year-old Kentvy Wong of Flushing, New York, have been charged with felony theft after their arrests on July 16.  Police arrested the three in a barn where the cooking oil was found.

According to St. Clair County court records none of the three has yet entered a plea or has an attorney. Contact information couldn't be found to try to reach the men for comment.
