CALLER ASSISTS POLICE IN MAKING COPPER WIRE ARREST
The alert citizens of St. Thomas have once again assisted the St. Thomas Police in making an arrest. A resident called police just after 9:15 a.m. Tuesday morning (February 6) because they saw two people acting suspiciously around the Elgin County Railway Museum.

Police arrived and located two men that matched the description that the caller had given them near Talbot and John Streets. The men were allegedly carrying 125 feet of copper wire. The value of the wire is close to $300. Police arrested the two men without incident and seized the copper wire.
A 34 year old man from St. Thomas is facing one count of possession of stolen property. The other male a 44 year old is charged with one count of possession of stolen property and one count of breach of probation.
They were both were released and will appear in court at a later date.
St. Thomas Police confirm with myFM news that they are investigating to see if there may be a connection to the copper wire theft from the train car beside the Railway City Tourism office last month.
