Scrap metal thieves ignore warnings

Sandusky Register Staff • Aug 27, 2014 at 2:38 PM

Matthew Koch, owner of Kelko Products on George Street, reported Friday morning two men had stolen 2,400 pounds of scrap steel worth $312.

An employee of the business saw the men racing away in a black Mercury Mariner with heavy damage to the front windshield. That same vehicle was seen Wednesday on Campbell Street, where two men were removing scrap metal.

Sandusky police told the men to put the items back and gave them their second warning for stealing scrap metal.

A paper belonging to one of those men was found in the area of the theft at Kelko Products.

The Register is not naming the suspects because they have not been charged.
