Three Indicted in Oil Theft Scheme and President’s Actions on Immigration Reform.
Federal authorities have arrested three South Texas men who have been charged with stealing approximately $1.5 million worth of oil from two companies operating in the Eagle Ford Shale.
A federal grand jury indicted the 3 on multiple counts of theft of oil from interstate shipment, wire fraud and money laundering. The indictment alleges that between January 2011 and August 2014 the defendants took part in a scheme that used a wastewater removal truck to pilfer oil from Newfield Exploration Co. and Anadarko Petroleum Corp.

If convicted, the crimes could be punishable by imprisonment up to 20 years and a fine of $250,000. Read More
