Copper Thieves Caught

Oakland County cops are cracking down on copper thieves.

Police in Beverly Hills arrested two men following a traffic stop when they discovered copper piping in the rear seat of the car. The officers discovered a list of addresses, including two homes in Ferndale.

Police checked those vacant homes and found the copper plumbing had been cut out and removed from the houses.

The 22-year-old Andrew Vinnoy Davis and 22-year-old Jeremy Menifield, are  facing two counts of breaking and entering.

Bond was set at $10,000 cash.

Each could face up to ten years in prison if convicted.
