Scrap metal theft
Cadiz Police Officer Duncan Wiggins arrested three suspects, identified as Terry Frank, 21, of Norwood, Penn., Alex L. Williams, 19, of Wichita Kan., and Teddy T. Marks 21, also of Wichita, Kan., and charged them with theft of scrap metal from Benson International.
Wiggins’ report said that he received a complaint that the trio allegedly attempted to take scrap metal without permission. He said that plant employees observed the three suspects loading a utility trailer nearly half full with metals. The report said that suspects removed the metal from the trailer prior to police arrival, though Benson employees held the suspects vehicle in the parking lot by securing a gate. Wiggins charged them with Theft by Unlawful Taking, a felony, given the value of the metals exceeded $300.
Cadiz police officers charged Columbus McGee, Jr., 42, of New Hope Road, Cadiz with driving with a suspended license due to a previous conviction from DUI on April 10. The arrest report said that an officer stopped the suspect for parking in the roadway. Upon checking on the status of McGee’s license, the officer learned it had been suspended since 2002 for DUI. Given the previous conviction, the police charged McGee with Driving with a Suspended License (first offense) with Aggravated Circumstances.
