GEORGETOWN, Del. - Two Georgetown men have been arrested, for allegedly stealing cooper. According to the Delaware State Police, on January 24th, around 2:50 AM, Troopers responded to a call about a chainsaw on a farm on Deer Forest Road in Georgetown.

The Troopers found two pick-up trucks, under the irrigation system, but the drivers were no where to be found. A K-9 unit was called in, and tracked from the pick-up truck to the residence of Minos Wilson, 36, of Georgetown, who happened to be the owners of one of the pick-up trucks.

An investigation showed that Minos Wilson, and his nephew, Chad Wilson, 27, also of Georgetown, had cut several pieces of copper wire from the irrigation system, before fleeing as troopers were pulling up.

On February 12th, both Wilsons turned themselves in at Troop 4, where they were charged with criminal mischief over $5,000, conspiracy second degree, theft under $1,500, and 3rd degree criminal trespass. They were both then released on $5,000 bond.

DSP says that copper theft from irrigation systems is an on-going problem, and they are asking that anyone with information about these crimes, to call Troop 4 Property Crimes Unit at 302-856-5850, extension 211, or Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.
