Sorry to hear, that. There are some real idiots around.

Are you sure it is sabotage? When oil cooks it goes sticky and brown, this is quite common especially in Turbo vehicles where the engine is revved up and shut down without having a chance to cool down.

I am not aware of a substance that can cause this and that matches your description other than treacle or molasses, but these would just tend to burn off.
