[ISP] Kokomo Man Arrested for Stealing $14,890 in Metal from Factory
Start Date: 2/13/2012
End Date: 2/13/2012
Entry Description

Kokomo – Recently, an investigation into the theft of metals from a Kokomo, IN, factory led to the arrest of Glen Alexander, 50, Kokomo, IN.

Indiana State Police Detective Josh Rozzi and Trooper Josh Maller started a criminal investigation after a supervisor at the Haynes International North Plant reported receiving an anonymous e-mail, stating Alexander was allegedly stealing molybdenum and nickel from the Kokomo, IN, factory. The metals are used by the company during the manufacturing process. A subsequent inventory revealed that thousands of pounds of the metals were missing.

The investigation revealed that Alexander allegedly stole the metal over several months and would transport his stolen stash to a metal scrap facility in Chicago, IL. Alexander purportedly sold the metal and used the cash for personal gain

While conducting surveillance on Alexander’s home, officers observed him allegedly loading what appeared to be metal bars into bed of his Dodge truck. As Alexander was driving away from a gas station near U.S. 31 and North Street, in Kokomo, Trooper Lee Williams initiated a traffic stop.  A subsequent search of the truck revealed two 30 gallon drums containing molybdenum bars. Also inside the drums were buckets containing nickel.

Alexander was arrested on a class D felony charge of theft/receiving stolen property. He was incarcerated in the Howard County Jail with a $10,000 bond. He has posted bond.

Officials from Haynes International valued the recovered metal at $14,890.
