GREAT BEND, Kan. (AP) - Central Kansas authorities are looking for whoever opened the valves on an oil lease stock tank over the weekend and caused 188 barrels of oil to spill to the ground.

Barton County Sheriff Brian Bellendir says the spill, which occurred between 1 p.m. Friday and 8:25 a.m. Saturday, resulted in a loss of more than $12,000.

The sheriff called the vandalism in rural Barton County a senseless act and urges anyone with information about the case to contact Crime Stoppers.
