Scrap metal theft trashed

stolen scrap metalA call came into the Mitchell County Sheriff’s Office on Friday morning about 11 a.m. regarding suspicious activity taking place on some property on FM 1808, the road that goes to the local airport. Sheriff Patrick Toombs said that the caller said they had seen someone loading metal into a trailer and thought the items were being stolen.
Deputies went out to the place where a pickup and trailer had been seen just minutes before, along with four people loading it, but were too late to catch anyone in the act. Toombs said that surrounding counties where scrap metal can be sold were notified and just 30 minutes later, good news came from Scurry County.
Deputies from the sheriff’s office located in Snyder had stopped a pickup pulling a trailer loaded with scrap metal. Three people had been taken into the Scurry County Jail where they were held until local deputies could pick them up and bring them back to Mitchell County.
Toombs said that Deputy Jeremiah Witte got the vehicle identified by the complainant and the stolen property identified by the owner and then transported the three people back to the jail here.
Three people were arrested, 40-year-old Misty Dawn Lane, 24-year-old Catrina Camille Mitchell and 26-year-old Christopher Allen Donaho. There is a warrant out for the arrest of a fourth person believed to have been involved in the theft.
Toombs said the person being sought by authorities has been banned from the scrap metal business in Snyder, because he is known to have been involved in thefts in the past. The sheriff said he thinks the group took time to drop the person off before traveling to Snyder to sell the metal.
Thefts such as this are becoming more common in the area, and thieves are more brazen than ever, as they are stealing property in broad daylight. Toombs said everyone should be on the lookout for suspicious activity on their land and their neighbor’s.
Suspicious activity can be reported by calling the sheriff’s office at 325-728-5261.
