Pickford Man Arrested for Stealing Copper in Mackinac County
A Pickford man is in jail accused of stealing copper wire from a rock quarry in Mackinac county. Between 200 and 300 pounds of copper wire were stolen from Carmeuse Lime and Stone/Rock Quarry in Clark Township Friday. An investigation led St. Ignace troopers to the home of Christian Williams. He admitted he stole copper from the same quarry back in April. Carmuese figures between 1,000 to 1,200 pounds of copper have been taken since January.
