Cooking oil left over from french fries and fried chicken has become liquid gold.
Organized criminal gangs are emptying storage tanks at restaurants and convenience stores across the United States.
Hello. I’m investigative reporter Robert Riggs with an unusual story from inside the crime scene tape.
Did you know a gallon of used cooking oil is now worth more than a gallon of gasoline?
The thefts fuel a multimillion-dollar black market.
Here to talk about it is Gary Edgington, a 40-year law enforcement veteran.
We are going to talk about a wide range of his cases from his career with the
Beverly Hills Police Department, LA County District Attorney…we will touch on the OJ Simpson murder trial. His work on narcotics cases and a member of the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force in Los Angeles. And later his role in counter-insurgency operations in Iraq.
Now he is the author of, Outside The Wire–A Novel of Murder Love, and War.
It’s a fictional thriller inspired by his experience about Iranian operatives bent on destroying America.
Here’s my interview with Gary Edgington.
