Two butterfingered bandits were caught red-handed on Friday while stealing grease from a Hemet McDonald’s. Since Officer Big Mac was tragically consumed on duty sometime back in the eighties, it was up to the owner of the store to go on stakeout after he had been robbed of his grease on two other occasions. Hiding in the restaurant, he spotted the crooks siphoning grease into a metal tank mounted into the bed of their Dodge pickup just before two in the morning. The cops arrived and arrested the two perpetrators before they could abscond with the blubber, which can be sold at a high profit to recyclers looking to turn tallow into biodiesel fuel. [PE]
