Brewer police arrest 2 with stolen scrap metal

Brewer police Officers Amy Nickerson and Edward Willey stopped a truck at around 1:40 a.m. Oct. 5 for an expired inspection sticker and their investigation determined the truck was filled with stolen scrap metal, Brewer police Lt. Chris Martin said Tuesday.

The officers knew of a recent theft from a business in the East-West Industrial Park, and “they contacted the business and the metal was identified as the items stolen,” he said.

Darrell St. Lawrence, 29, of Bangor and Matthew Murray, 27, of Hodgdon “admitted they stole scrap metal from two different businesses in the industrial park,” Martin said.

Both were charged with receiving stolen property and taken to Penobscot County Jail. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
