Police looking for suspect in copper, scrap metal thefts

A man is being sought by police for stealing copper and scrap metal from a storage facility near Newark.

Police say scrap metal and copper have been stolen from a facility on Brookmont Drive in the Sparrow Run Townhouses community in a series of thefts beginning last week.

A man entered the back of the storage area between 1:30 and 2:30 Thursday afternoon, and began looking for items to take.

However, the suspect was confronted by the facility's owner and then fled into the Glasgow Court Trailer Park.

Anyone with information is asked to call New Castle County police or Delaware CrimeStoppers.
