Tar on Texas beaches thought not from spill-Coast Guard

HOUSTON, June 30 (Reuters) - Tar balls have been reported on Texas beaches, U.S Coast Guard Admiral Thad Allen said on Wednesday, but added that he believed they were not related to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

The tar balls, which are sticky balls of oil, will be tested to determine if they came from the blown-out BP Plc (BP.N) (BP.L) well. (Reporting by Anna Driver and Kristen Hays in Houston, editing by Jackie Frank)
