BECKLEY -

An investigation into a case of attempted copper theft leads to the arrest of two men on Monday, Feb. 17.

Brandon Mays and Brandon McMillion, both 21-years-old, were arrested after being caught inside a home at 135 Quarry St. in Beckley.  They are charged with Burglary, Conspiracy, Destruction of Property and Larceny. 

Officers with the Beckley Police Department were called the home at 12:30 a.m. after neighbors called 911.  The neighbors had reported seeing two men inside with flashlights.  When investigators arrived they caught May and McMillion who were apparently trying to steal copper wire and pipes from the home.  Police said both men were arrested without putting up a fight.

According to a release, there was some damage done to the home, but no property was taken.  Both Mays and McMillion are being held in the Southern Regional Jail.  Their bond is set at $50,000 each.
