On Monday, June 19, 2023, a just after 1:00 a.m., two white males were seen leaving the Golden Dragon Copper Plant in Pine Hill with approximately 8 square bales (between $18k -$20k) worth of stolen copper. A gray or silver, possibly a Dodge Ram 3500 truck pulling a white opened top trailer was permitted to enter the gate after the unidentified male driver informed security he was maintenance.
A few minutes after the two male subjects had already loaded several bales of copper onto the trailer, another employee saw them wearing bandannas across their faces, yellow hard hats and yellow security vests. Once they were seen, they got back in the vehicle and managed to exit the gate with the stolen copper before the employee could alert security.
The vehicle, again believed to be a gray or silver Dodge Ram 3500, was last seen traveling east on Hwy 10 in the Camden area that same night. One subject is described as very slender built, possibly 5’10 or 6’0 while the other subject is described as average size and about 5’7.
Anyone with information regarding this vehicle, trailer, or these two individuals, please contact the Pine Hill Police Department at 334-963-4351 or 334-431-8888.
