Scrap Metal Valued at $4,000 Stolen

 Laurens City Police were dispatched to a building on South Harper Extension at 7:14 last night to investigate the theft of various scrap metal materials from inside a storage building. Materials valued at $4,000 had reportedly been taken from inside the building, other items from outside the building and in a smaller storage shed on the property. The owner indicated he found the items missing after a former business partner of his who operates a salvage business had items delivered to him that he recognized from the Laurens property. The owner was in the process of better securing the materials that remained.
