POSEY CO., IN (WFIE) - Indiana Conservation Officers are investigating a oil spill in Posey County.

It happened on July 2 between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Schuessler Road.

Two barrels of oil spilled out of a tank.

Most of the oil was contained within a barrier wall, but some did spill out on the road.

Officers say the cause appears to be vandalism because there were no issues with the tank itself.

Anyone with information about the person or persons responsible is asked to call 1-800-TIP-IDNR.
