Teens Arrested for Stealing Copper

Two Jackson County teenagers are behind bars in neighboring Washington County for allegedly trying to steal copper wiring.

Chipley Police Chief Kevin Crews credits alert officers with foiling the burglary.

Chief Crews says the teenagers got inside a security fence at the Gulf Power office in Chipley.

They were reportedly in the process of taking copper spools off the utility trucks.

However, a policeman spotted them and the two suspects scaled the fence to escape.

A canine tracking team later located them several blocks away.

Both teenagers are charged with burglary, grand theft and resisting arrest without violence.

    Is that comment suppose to be two sentences or one? Between the incorrect use of words and punctuations we can't tell which. Maybe employers don't make it difficult to get the job, they just want qualified, educated, and experienced people doing them instead. Pick up a trade and get some schooling...start with ENG 1101.

    What a stupid comment about employers. If there were not so many thieves employers wouldn't have to check people out. If you don't take care of your own business you won't take care of someone elses. Hope they throw the book at these teens...teach them now what noone else has been able to. Oh and the correct spelling is STEAL..they conceal information like that in books!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If more employers wouldn't make it so complicated for people to get a job. Then it wouldn't be necessary for people to steel.
