Two men were arrested last weekend after they were caught stealing scrap wire from a local business.
The theft happened at T.D. Johnson Enterprises, at W. Maple and 2nd Street in Cedar Springs, early Saturday morning, November 12. The owner, Brad Johnson, got an anonymous tip that someone planned to hit the shop at 4 a.m., so he and his girlfriend, Amanda Blair, staked out the place and waited for them to show up.
Blair said that the suspects showed up about 3:50 a.m. and began to steal wire, so they called 9-1-1 and waited for police. The suspects ran when they saw the lights from the police car. According to Cedar Springs Police Sgt. Ed Good, Officer Mike Stahl chased the suspects. Both Rockford Police and the Kent County Sheriff Department arrived as backup. The suspects, a 30-year-old Sparta man and a 24-year-old Cedar Springs man, were caught, made to unload the wire, and taken to the Kent County jail.
Both men bonded out, and had not yet been arraigned at press time. Their names are being withheld pending arraignment.
