WASHINGTON (AP) — Metro Transit Police say they’ve arrested a Maryland man for stealing more than $10,000 worth of copper wire from Metro facilities.

Police say they spent months gathering evidence against James Mulcahey III of Mechanicsville, Md., who worked for a Metro electrical contractor. They say he stole copper from Metro property in Maryland several times between June and November.

Police say Mulcahey would then sell the copper for cash to a company in Charles County. That’s where he was arrested Thursday afternoon after police say he made a sale.

He’s charged with felony theft.

Police say they haven’t determined the exact value of the stolen copper but it’s believed to be more than $10,000.
