Newark Man Accused of Stealing Cooking Oil from Linden NJ Restaurant

Newark NJ Theft ChargesA Newark NJ man was busted for allegedly stealing cooking oil from a restaurant in Linden, New Jersey.

According to authorities, a Linden police officer spotted the suspect attempting to commit the theft around 1:00 a.m. When the patrol officer drove past Bella Gina’s Italian Deli and Catering, he saw the 33-year-old suspect sitting in a white Ford van parked behind the restaurant.

The police officer approached the suspect’s motor vehicle and reportedly noticed a half-full tank of liquid in the back of the van.

Additionally, the police officer said that another possible suspect in the theft took off when he saw the officer move toward the van.
