The Sheboygan Police Department has been investigating a series of thefts from Sadoff Iron, a local metal salvage yard on the north side of the city. Valuable metal such as copper and red brass has been targeted during multiple, different incidents. Several thousand dollars worth of scrap metal has been stolen since the beninning of November. After a thorough investigation, an arrest was recently made on a suspect responsible for one of the thefts, and felony charges have been referred to the Sheboygan County District Attorney’s Office.
We are currently working closely with local salvage yards to implement preventative strategies to reduce their risk to victimization. Anyone considering stealing scrap metal should know that we take these crimes seriously and thoroughly investigate them. If you have information on scrap metal thefts, please contact our department or Sheboygan County Crimestoppers.
