Shoplifter of the Week: Copper edition

Deputies in Kent County, Mich., are looking for three men who allegedly stole shopping carts full of copper items and tools from Menards stores in Ohio and Michigan, according to a report by WZZM-TV.

Authorities have identified 38-year-old Franklin Miller, 27-year-old Lance Trecek and 23-year-old Thomas Schafer as the suspects. In at least three incidents, detectives said, merchandise was stolen when one person stood at a checkout holding a large piece of drywall or fencing to block the cashier's view. The other two men would then push out carts full of copper and tools.
