Metal Theft Reported in Beloit

BELOIT (WIFR) -- Beloit police are trying to find two guys wanted for allegedly stealing more than 500 pounds of metal.

We're told the heist happened over the weekend at H&B Specialty Foods on Sager Lane. Police say the men stole a barrel of scrap copper wiring and an aluminum pipe.

Two suspects, one described as in his forties 5'10" 200 with shaggy sandy hair & one described as 13 with shoulder length blonde hair.

The suspect's vehicle is an older dark green beat up Dodge pickup truck (possibly around a 1998 model year or similar).

If you have a suspect, please call Beloit PD at 364-6831 or Crime Stoppers at 36CRIME.
Police say to help prevent these thefts lock up scrap metals. Spray valuable metals "pink" so they are identifiable when turned over to scrap dealers.
