Police have arrested two suspects in connection with the attempted theft of tools from the worksite on the Central High School campus in an incident that occurred early Monday morning, Nov. 20.

In his report, Officer Terry Daugherty stated that he was patrolling the Springdale Road area when he observed a white pickup truck parked at the locked gate near the Baldwin and Shell job site on School Road. The driver of the truck told the officer that she had made a wrong turn and was turning around to leave when he stopped her.

At this point, Daugherty asked for the driver's identification. Dispatch information revealed that her license was suspended. She was placed in custody.

Backup arrived to aid Daugherty. The officers observed a white male wearing brown coveralls walking out of the work area. Officers asked the man what he was doing on the property at such an early hour of the morning.

The man told the officers that he had left his tools on the property before the demolition crew started working and they would not allow him to have them. The police report states the man said he placed a saw in the bushes before exiting the site.

The officers escorted the man back to the property to locate and retrieve the saw. The battery-powered saw was discovered about 50 yards inside the gate in the bushes near the driveway.Officers seized the saw and the man was placed in custody.

A search of the vehicle turned up two bags of miscellaneous tools in the backseat; a glass pipe was found inside a eyeglass case in the rear passenger door pouch; and a piece of large copper wiring, approximately six-inches long, was discovered in the truck bed.

Both individuals were transported to the H–WHPD for processing. The truck was towed and impounded.

The job site superintendent reported that he would take an inventory of their property at the job site.

The woman faces a charge of driving on a suspended license, obstructing government operations and possession of drug paraphernalia. She is scheduled to appear in district court on Dec. 12.

The man is facing a commercial burglary charge.

The General Investigation Bureau of the H–WHPD is in charge of the investigation.
