ALBANY, GA (WALB) -Metal thieves strike again in Albany. This time they didn't get far before they were busted red handed while trying to trade their stolen loot for cash.

Robert James, Manager of Flint River Services, noticed someone stealing pallets of steel railings from his Mitchell Avenue business around 4:00 p.m.

He followed the brown Chevy Blazer to Schnitzer Southeast Recycling Center where he saw two men with the stolen metal and called the cops.

Officers arrested 22-year-old Richard Bodiford Jr. and 24-year-old James Bryant.

Both are charged with felony theft by taking.

Investigators say the pair stole 40 steel railings specially made for cold storage units, and 16 steel stoppers totaling well over a thousand dollars.

Bodiford and Bryant are being held in the Dougherty county Jail.
