WASHINGTON COUNTY, Pa. —

Police and K-9 units quickly tracked down two men Tuesday caught on surveillance trying to steal copper from a Washington County construction site.

Investigators said someone with the company was watching the cameras and called 911 when they spotted two men inside the site in North Bethlehem.

Moments after they were seen on surveillance, police arrived and quickly arrested the suspects on Brush Run Road. Their names have not been released, and police haven’t said what charges they’ll face.

State police told Channel 11’s Brandon Hudson that the business was broken into last month, as well, and they’re working to see if the incidents are related.

A company spokesperson said they’re letting police handle the matter.
