Staff Report

NewsWest 9 first showed you video of thieves making off with diesel fuel stolen from a rig in Ector County Wednesday night.

NewsWest Nine has learned just after our broadcast a new set of crooks were caught on tape.

Private Investigator Tom Finley tells NewsWest Nine this time vandals, not thieves, shot up a rig off the Interstate.

The men pulled up and fired several rounds, before bolting.

NewsWest Nine contacted the FBI, they say there is a rise in the number of oil field related thefts and other crimes and they're working with Midland County Commissioners to put a stop to it.

If you have any information, call (432)-561-5660.

There is a $500 reward.
