The scrap metal business alerted factory owners Wednesday that it received several pieces of brass rod brought in on different occasions and suspected the metal could be coming from the plant, according to a Fremont police report. 

Managers checked the suspected stolen goods, and the material matched what is used at the factory.

Through scrap metal logs, they identified the seller as the wife of a factory employee.

Since December 2011, she sold almost 1,900 pounds of the brass and received almost $3,000 for it, according to the police report.

When factory managers confronted the employee about the allegations, he didn’t deny them and was fired.

Charges have not been filed.
