Stillwater Police arrested Joseph Coon for the thefts, and charged him with Petit Larceny, Grand Larceny and Criminal Trespass. After an investigation conducted by the Stillwater Police, it’s believed that Coons stole the metals on two different occasions, and then sold them to an Albany scrap yard.

According to a story from WNYT, the metal was valued at more than $2,500 dollars, and the stolen property has been located.
