Bainbridge-- The materials valuing between $60,000-65,000  were at the construction site of the new Bainbridge High School.

Around 2:30 in the morning, a job supervisor who spends the night at the site, saw a truck leaving, pulling a trailer he said was heavily weighed down.

Investigator Chris Jordan with Bainbridge Public Safety said, "on the trailer there were 14 rolls of one type of wire, and 2 to 300 of the 20 foot pieces of copper tubing."

The suspects ditched the trailer. Deputies caught up with them just over the Florida line. While talking to the driver, the other suspects fled. The truck was found the next day in Gadsden County Florida.
