Two Arrested in Copper Theft Case

Charleston police made a bust this week in a copper theft case. 21-year old Brittany Renee Vandale and 22-year old Jerrith Edward Witt, both of Charleston, have been arrested and charged in the case. Police say they stole hundreds of pounds of copper from Charleston's East End. Officers think they stole several copper downspouts and copper piping all over the East End, and they could face additional charges of burglary and transfer and receiving stolen property.
