Early this morning, a Longview Police officer saw a suspicious car entering the gate to the Longview Mechanical Contractor company on Fisher Road. The car had turned its lights off before someone in the car got out, unlocked the gate, and drove the car in.
When the officer saw this, he called for backup, and he and his fellow officers soon arrested Robert Leroy Green, 44, and Mary Ellen Clark, 52, for trying to steal batteries from the company. They had backed their car into one of the bays and were in the process of loading locomotive batteries into it when they were caught.
They've been charged with burglary of a building and Clark was also charged with possession of marijuana.
