Calvert County man faces scrap metal theft charges

A man faces scrap metal theft charges to the tune of about $45,000. Authorities have accused him of the theft of numerous machines and sheet metal from a former employer. The defendant was employed by the business for about six months. The business owner said the thief knew how to avoid detection from security cameras. The suspect sold the items to a scrap yard for just under $700 in December 2012. He gave the business his driver's license information. The metal was destroyed almost as soon as it arrived at the business. A slow economy and the increasing price of metal have resulted in the rise in scrap metal thefts from businesses. Salvage yards realize the implications of the thefts and help authorities who investigate.

Maryland 'Scrap King' faces theft charges, scorn from neighbors

A Maryland man, whose actions have been documented by television cameras, will face court and a jury trial for three counts of burglary, two counts of theft and property destruction this month. In addition, a neighborhood association has filed separate charges against him for his home business along with the property crime and felony theft charge he now faces. The community claims that the defendant is violating neighborhood regulations by cluttering his property with debris and that it detracts from the overall appearance of the community.

His battles with neighbors attracted the interest of a reality show called "House Wars," which filmed an episode that has yet to air.
