He did pay for the used vegetable oil I hope. And he’ll also need some cleaning solutions as well to get the oil off. It must have been a slimy situation. You better be care full he might slip though the bars.

"He reportedly told police he was able to move through the vent while he was working, so he figured he could use it to rob the store."

Maybe he shouldn't have gone to the "all you can eat buffet" before climbing down that shaft.
