Scrappers charged with stealing aluminum cable near Joliet

A citizen's tip led Will County sheriff's police to take two would-be scrappers into custody last week for swiping 50 feet of aluminum cable from a ComEd site just outside Joliet, police said.

Brian W. Sniegowski, 38, of the 1800 block of Nicholson Street, Crest Hill, and Gordon N. Neitzel, 46, of the 24700 block of East Street, Plainfield, are charged with misdemeanor theft, police said.

Deputies said they tracked Sniegowski to a metal recycling facility in Joliet as he was transporting cable in Neitzel's sport-utility vehicle. Neitzel, who had been barred from the facility, was waiting at a nearby fast-food restaurant when deputies took him into custody, police said.,0,2765368.story
