Smithville Telephone reported to Ellettsville police last week that, late in the evening of November 27, someone had stolen copper, radiators and rotors from the company.

A deputy marshal stopped the vehicle a short distance from the lot and identified the driver as 56year-old Melanie J. Huntsman, of Gosport.

She was arrested her on a preliminary charge of felony theft and booked into the Monroe County Jail where she is being held on a $5,000 surety, $500 cash.
