Vandals target Beauregard oil well, cause spill

Beauregard Parish sheriff's officials responded early Sunday to a vandalism call from an oil-well site off Highway 389 near DeQuincy.

The caller said that someone vandalized the oil site, creating a major spill. Sources say 220 barrels were spilled.

Environmental issues are not expected since sites like these are normally encircled by a berm. Hazmat teams were called out to clean up the oily mess.

Midstates Petroleum representatives have not commented on the spill.
