FARGO (KFGO-AM) - A Fargo Police sting nabbed two men who allegedly stole a spool of cooper wire from a construction site Wednesday morning.

Lt. Joel Vettel says the wire was being monitored by police using electronic surveillance. It's the latest tool police are using to catch thieves ripping off "high value" metals that can be sold for scrap.

Miles Bryan, 23 and Tyler Morley,20, both of Fargo were arrested within minutes of the theft on charges of possession of stolen property as they drove into West Fargo.
