We hear about copper theft constantly... in fact back in the winter one of my neighbors had part of his copper gutter removed without his permission.

Wednesday morning however, an alert viewer tells me she saw two men running from a neighbor's driveway with what appeared to be copper gutter pieces.

She called police with a description of who and what she saw.

Police called her back a short time later to say they nabbed two guys at Southern Metals Processing matching that description.  She went to identify them.  They cried and admitted what they did.  Sweet!

That's one for the good guys!
