Detectives with the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office have arrested two men for allegedly stealing copper wiring.
Police in Salisbury are looking for the rare thief who's apparently eager to go to prison. Someone broke into the Piedmont Correctional Institution, stole copper from an air conditioning unit and escaped.
The two men went to the side of the church (Winter Park Presbyterian Church) and started loading up copper drainage piping that had been cut from the church buildings. Detectives stopped the suspects before they drove away. All of the stolen copper was recovered, including some that apparently was taken earlier in the night.
