Fort Wright police looking for scrap metal thieves

FORT WRIGHT, Ky. – Police are looking for bold scrap metal thieves who have stolen from a local business several times in the last few weeks.

The accompanying photos show the thieves hitting Howell Construction on Old Ky. 17 on July 13, according to Fort Wright Det. George Kreutzjans.

"They've come at daytime, nighttime, on Sunday – at least five times," Kreutzjans said.

The man and woman travel in a black, 2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. They load scrap metal and cast iron pipe fittings in the trunk, Kreutzjans said.

"We suspect they are hitting other businesses, too, and taking it somewhere local to scrap. We're trying to locate that place," Kreutzjans said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 513-352-3040.
