Glenn Eugene Martin Jr., 50, 476 Crestview, and Timothy Sylvester, 25, 118 Old Meadow Road, were arrested Thursday. Martin’s bond was set at $5,000, and no bond was set for Sylvester.

Bartholomew Ward, 46, 76 Providence Road, was arrested Friday and released on $2,500 recognizance bond.

“They were stealing copper from Andrews Metals (in Natchez) and reselling it in Concordia (Parish),” ACSO Detective Robert Brown said. “They’ve been doing it for a while. We got five or six reports.”

Brown said the metal was lucrative business.

“It’s so high — $3 a pound,” Brown said. “They were making plenty of money.”

The case is still under investigation, and Brown said he expects at least four more arrests to be made.
