Police Arrest Men In Costly Construction Theft

By  | 

Two men are in the Fayette County jail charged in a costly theft from a Lexington construction site.

Police were called to Liberty Road near Caden Lane after 11:30 p.m. Monday.

Police say someone spotted two men putting manhole covers and construction signs into a truck.

Police got a description of the truck and found it at the Speedway at New Circle Road and Liberty.

That's where police arrested Daniel Carter and Lanny Green.

They're charged with felony counts of theft because police say the items they stole were worth more than $700.

Police think the two were going to sell the items because they contained metals.
