ST BERNARD, La. — The St. Bernard Sheriff's Office announced on Thursday that three men have been arrested for releasing thousands of gallons of Entergy oil.
Ronald Clark, Gerard Henninger and Jeremy Johnson were all arrested on Tuesday and charged with, "damage to a critical infrastructure and simple burglary."
SBSO said in a statement on Thursday that law enforcement had not yet arrested Jeremy Johnston, who police say is wanted for the same crimes as Clark and Henninger.
The leak happened on Sunday, when, according to an Entergy spokesperson, 20,000 gallons of oil were released from an oil filled transformer in Arabi on Sunday.
Officers determined that the removal of two large valves, which caused oil to seep out, was caused by criminal activity.
That substation, near Benjamin Street, had de-energized after the area was hit by a tornado in March.
Police said they identified the three men charged with dumping out the oil, were identified by evidence collected in a scrapyard.
