Another suspect in Logan County, WV copper theft ring arrested

Another suspect in a copper theft ring in Logan County has been arrested.

West Virginia State Police say James Lester surrendered himself to them Wednesday night after learning there was a warrant out for his arrest.

Police arrested six of Lester's relatives Tuesday following an investigation into a copper theft ring in the Man area that began in January.

Police say they also had a warrant for Cecil Bartram's arrest, but it turned out Bartram was already being held in the Southwestern Regional Jail for other charges.

Police say these arrests have led to tips they believe may lead to more arrests, and the investigation is ongoing.
