ANNE ARUNRDEL, Md. — Detectives have arrested two men after investigating a months-long scheme to steal more than a hundred thousand dollars worth of copper wire from the Rock Creek Construction Company in Crofton.

Police say they caught the thieves in the act of stealing. They had applied for charges on the two suspects, Kim Fahrenbach and Robert Prosser of Baltimore, but they couldn’t find them to serve the warrants.

On March 19 around two a.m., detectives were conducting surveillance when they saw a theft from Rock Creek Construction as it was taking place. They sent out a description of the suspect vehicle to patrolmen, who apprehended it and found $2,500 worth of copper wire and the two suspects.

Fahrenbach and Prosser were then both arrested and charged with fourth degree burglary, theft over $1,000, and trespassing.
