Police Arrest Three Men, Suspected Of Stealing Copper

Last week, we reported about thieves stealing copper from homes still under construction.  This week, Longview Police have arrested Daniel Lee Clark, Tyler Matthew Procell, and Cason Layne Johnson.   Police are looking for Coltin Tanner Bryant also believed to be involved.  

The four men have been charged with theft, a state jail felony, for stealing copper wiring from the homes.

Building Superintendent Jimmy Martin says he is thankful arrests have been made.   "It's an ease of mind that I don't have to worry about it--getting stuff stolen at night."

Martin says building inspectors will now take a look at the new wiring in the homes that replaced the stolen wiring.
