Culprit Behind Used Cooking Oil Thefts Arrested by Ramapo Police

The Ramapo Police Investigations Division has successfully cracked down on a string of thefts involving used cooking oil from local businesses. The division’s diligent efforts led to the identification of a suspect vehicle and a clear pattern of criminal activity.

Early this morning, Ramapo Police Detectives conducted a well-coordinated surveillance operation that culminated in the apprehension of the suspect responsible for the cooking oil thefts. The suspect’s vehicle was tracked as it entered the town, eventually leading detectives to a business establishment in Monsey.

At the scene, law enforcement officers witnessed the suspect in the act of emptying stolen cooking oil containers. Swiftly and without incident, detectives made the arrest.

The apprehended individual, a 49-year-old male hailing from Queens, New York, now faces a slew of charges related to his cooking oil theft spree. Among the charges are multiple counts of Petit Larceny, Criminal Possession of Stolen Property, and Possession of Burglars’ Tools, encompassing all past incidents. Additionally, he was found to be in possession of heroin, resulting in an additional charge of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance.

As part of the ongoing investigation, the suspect’s vehicle and related equipment have been impounded as critical pieces of evidence.

The accused individual has been released from custody, pending a future court appearance where he will answer for his alleged crimes.
