HAGERSTOWN — Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies pulled over a truck that was hauling scrap metal Monday morning on Key Avenue west of Hagerstown, a sheriff’s office spokesman said.

The matter remained under investigation after deputies were unable to contact a man who the driver said was the owner of the scrap metal, the spokesman said.

Washington County authorities have been investigating a series of recent copper thefts.

At least 28 copper thefts have been reported in Hagerstown over the last few months, The Herald-Mail has reported.
