For weeks, Clarksburg police have been trying to track down the person responsible for stealing copper from at least half a dozen businesses and buildings in the eastern part of the city. Early Wednesday morning, they think they finally got their man.
Around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday, police arrested James Allen Herbig while he was supposedly trying to break in to the Elite Cleaners and steal copper.
Elite Cleaners was only the latest Clarksburg business to become a target for copper thieves. Police believe Herbig stole copper from the Immaculate Conception, the Compact Store in Broadway, Mountaineer Mart, DC's Barber Shop, the Clarksburg-Harrison County Housing Authority, the United Methodist Church on the border of 2nd and Pike Street, as well as an unidentified building on the corner of Chestnut and Pike Streets.
