ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A Worth County man, wanted for stealing copper wiring from irrigation system pivots, is in jail, thanks to our alert viewers.
We showed you Randy Stovall on WALB's Most Wanted Tuesday night.
Wednesday morning he and three other men were caught red handed, burning copper wire stolen from irrigation systems.
Around 7:30 AM a caller told Dougherty County Sheriff's Investigators that he spotted the man on last night's Most Wanted burning copper wire on Council Road in East Dougherty County.
Stovall was wanted for stealing copper wire off at least a half-dozen irrigation systems in Worth and Dougherty Counties.
Sheriff's Investigators, Dougherty County Police, and DNR Rangers surrounded the fire and caught them red handed.
Dougherty County Sheriff's Office Captain Craig Dodd said "And apprehended three of the subjects around the fire. They were still burning the wire. The wire was still very hot flame, smoke coming up. We apprehended Mr. Stovall hiding in a closet in the house. Mr. Stovall did resist arrest."
Dougherty County Police Captain Jimmy Sexton said "It's very dangerous to breathe the fumes from this wire. It's toxic. We need to let the public know this kind of stuff is going on, maybe right in their neighborhood."
Stovall is in the Dougherty County Jail, charged with four counts of theft by taking.
Jourdan Taylor, Jarrod Taylor, and Mickel Wilkes are all charged with unlawful burning, and could face further charges as the investigation continues.
