An unidentified person has reportedly stolen used cooking oil from a Chick-fil-A in Athens, Georgia.

The alleged thief reportedly dressed up like an employee of Valley Proteins, which collects and recycles animal processing food waste, including used cooking oils, according to student newspaper The Red & Black.

The stolen cooking oil was reportedly worth $1,000, the newspaper reported, citing an incident report by the Athens-Clarke County Police Department.

The Chick-fil-A location only found out about the theft after Valley Proteins called employees to inform them of the impersonator, according to the incident report.

The person reportedly stole the oil between Aug. 3 and Sept. 28.

According to The Red & Black, the impersonator “had some method of gaining access to the locked grease vault” and used a truck that had the Valley Proteins logo on it.

However, the company reportedly said the truck did not actually belong to Valley Proteins.

The Athens-Clarke County Police Department did not immediately respond to Fox News’s request for comment.

According to a report from PennLive.com, cooking oil can be used to make biodiesel, after it is converted into what’s called “yellow grease.”

Last year, AL.com reported that $75 million worth of used cooking grease is stolen every year.
