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.
