WAYNE COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — Soon after posting surveillance pictures to Facebook, Wayne County deputies arrested a man who they said stole copper from the new Wayne County Technology School building.

Tips led deputies to a recycling shop, where several rolls of the stolen copper were found.

Police said they traced it to the home of William Paige, where they said they found 12 more rolls of the copper.

Paige has been charged with burglary and theft.

More arrests are expected.
