Copper theft arrest

Copper theft arrest

A Huntsville man responsible for stealing copper from air conditioning units in Northwest Huntsville has been charged with several counts of thefts.

Adam Darrell McGuff, 21, is in the Madison County Metro jail.

Officers say they checked McGuff's name with several recycling businesses and investigators discovered that he had sold 67 AC copper coils in the past several months.

Officers arrested McGuff Monday at a recycling business, where they found evidence that he had stolen copper from two other cases earlier in the morning.

Further investigation revealed he was responsible for more than $66,000 in damages and repairs to homes and businesses.

Other cases are pending in this investigation.
