Two men are in custody for breaking into vacant homes and stealing copper piping. This type of crime has been plaguing the area.
Beverly Hills Police stopped the men for a traffic violation. The driver of the car had a suspended driver’s license and the passenger had a warrant for his arrest. The two were arrested and upon further investigation, BHPD discovered copper piping in the rear seat of the car. The officers also found a list of addresses of houses, including two homes in Ferndale.

Both suspects have criminal histories.
