Richmond County investigators arrested Alexander Bradford, 39, of the 1300 block of Bruce Street, and Tommy Kyles, 55, of the 1600 block of 12th Street, in connection with the theft of $2,000 in metal from Eubanks Automotive on Walton Way, Investigator Kendall Brown said in an e-mail.

Bradford and Kyles were both arrested when they tried to sell the stolen metal, which was concealed in shopping carts, to Newell’s Recycling Center.

Bradford is connected to another theft at Eubanks on Wednesday, resulting in $1,075 worth of metal being stolen, Brown said.

Bradford has been booked on two separate felony charges of theft by taking and Kyles has been charged with felony theft by receiving stolen property.

Another excellent job by the RCSO and the CID unit who started the CSRA Metal Theft Task Force under the direction of Investigator Brown. Keep up the great work. Now, if only our judges will put repeat offenders behind bars for as long as possible.
