Ten people have been arrested in the theft of about $2 million worth of oil and gas condensate from oil companies and producers in West Texas. The arrests Tuesday came following a seven-month investigation by a regional oil theft task force.
Six of the suspects face charges of federal wire fraud, mail fraud and conspiracy. Four were arrested on state money laundering charges.
Midland County Sheriff Gary Painter told the Odessa American that the suspects stole about 8,000 barrels of oil in one month alone.
