According to investigators, over 359 copper ingots weighing a total of 144 tons at a value of $1.25 million were seized.   According to a statement released by the Arizona Department of Public Safety, authorities obtained a lead on the criminal operations as the result of a commercial traffic stop and warranted residence search.

The search and traffic stop lead to the seizure of over $300,000 worth of stolen copper, three trailer truck tractors, three semi-trailers, one fork lift, and two hand carts.

In a statement released by the Arizona DPS,  Dept. Director Robert Halliday said, “This is an extremely dynamic and complicated criminal case. Our detectives did a terrific job from the outset tracking this theft from its inception in Southern Arizona following the money all the way to the Port of Los Angeles.”
