Police say scrap metal was the target of a commercial theft at Sheridan Plumbing and Heating that resulted in the arrest of a Gloucester City man who used to work for the company.
On July 8, Collingswood police received a report of a garage burglary in the 600 block of Atlantic Ave. in which more than $1,000 in scrap
copper and other metals were stolen.
Upon investigation, police charged 31-year-old George Becker of Gloucester City, an ex-employee of Sheridan, with third-degree conspiracy to commit burglary.
Timothy Rusk, 29, of Bellmawr, who allegedly drove Becker to the scene, was also charged with third-degree conspiracy to commit burglary.
Both men were remanded to the Camden County correctional facility on default of $7,500 cash-or-bond bail.
