(AUBURN) - Two northwest Indiana men are both facing a Class C felony of theft after the Indiana State Police say they were arrested late Monday night for allegedly stealing copper wire from INDOT light poles on I-69 at State Road 8 near Auburn. Indiana State Police Detective Clint Hetrick says he and First Sergeant Mark Carunchia were following up on a lead into a rash of copper wire thefts in and around Fort Wayne. They were in the area of I-69 and State Road 8 at approximately 10:40pm when they saw two men walking from the interchange to their pickup truck in the Home Depot parking lot. The vehicle stopped as it pulled onto the exit ramp to southbound I-69. Both men got out and loaded something from the shoulder of the road into the bed of the pickup. Two other Troopers pulled up behind the truck a few miles later after it had stopped on its own at County Road 11A. After talking with the two men, Troopers saw 10 rolls of insulated copper wire in the bed of the truck along with wire cutters in one of the driver’s pant pockets. A check of the light poles at the interchange found that the wire had been cut and removed from four of them. The estimated value of the wire is between $2,000 and $3,000. 29-year-old Ryan S. Self of Chesterton and 36-year-old Jerone Dunams of Gary were both taken into custody without incident and incarcerated in the DeKalb County Jail.
