A sheriff’s deputy responding to a metal theft at a Winder grading company found two backpacks full of stolen metal and concrete and a wallet containing a high school diploma that belonged to one of the two who have been charged in connection to the thefts.
According to a Barrow County Sheriff’s Office incident report, Jessica Nicole Davis, 22, and Amber Nicole Fields, 23, both of 290 Maxey St., Dacula, were arrested Jan. 23. Both have been charged with two counts of felony theft by taking, one count of misdemeanor theft by taking and one count of criminal trespass.
The owner of McDaniel Grading on West Winder Industrial called police after he arrived at his business the morning of Jan. 20 to find it had been burglarized.
The suspects had apparently filled up their backpacks and a cooler on wheels with metal and plates to heavy equipment and drug the materials into near wooded lot behind the parking lot near a pond located by the Highland Park subdivision.
Some paperwork was found in in one of the two backpacks with Field’s name and date of birth on it, as well as a wallet-sized copy of Fields' Winder-Barrow High School diploma, according to the report.
This is too funny!I know steel isn't going for so much as to make all the work required to move those plates worthwhile,,,and CONCRETE??They are way heavy for MEN to lug off enough to buy a 6 pack,,,,Guess it is best they got caught before they went to sell the metal,, (what in the world were they planning to do with the concrete?) I am thinking they were spared bigtime disappointment by not making it to the recycling place
