Theft at local quarry leads to arrests

Randolph County Sheriff Jarrod Peters announced arrests in connection to a recent theft at the Fred Weber Inc. Rock Quarry on Bluff Road.

Deputies were called to the quarry during the early morning hours of Jan. 24 for a report of a theft in progress, however the individual was gone by the time deputies arrived.

Representatives with the quarry identified a large amount of copper wiring stolen from the conveyer equipment at the facility, a monetary loss at the time estimated in the thousands. This loss was later estimated in excess of $35,000 (material, damage and repair).
