Suspect Arrested in Oil Barrel Theft (Oct 18, 2012)

EL RENO, Okla. (AP) - Authorities say a Yukon man has been arrested on suspicion of stealing hundreds of barrels of crude oil from oilfield sites in Oklahoma.

Canadian County Sheriff Randall Edwards says Mark Dale Bass Jr. is accused in one of the largest thefts of crude oil in state history.

Authorities say Devon Energy reported the theft of a large amount of crude oil in August from several oilfield sites in Canadian County. The sheriff tells The Oklahoman that Bass was arrested after authorities reportedly followed him to an oilfield site in Grady County where about 100 barrels of oil were stolen from a tank battery.

Edwards says Bass was then arrested in Canadian County. Authorities did not know if he had an attorney.
