GEORGETOWN, Del.- Delaware State Police have charged two people with stealing copper from an irrigation system in Georgetown.

Troopers said they responded to a report of chainsaw noises in a farm field on Deer Forrest Road in the early morning of Jan. 24. Police said they discovered two empty pickup trucks under an irrigation system.

One of the vehicles belonged to 36-year-old Minos J. Wilson of Georgetown. The other vehicle was not properly registered, according to police. Troopers said an investigation revealed Wilson and his 27-year-old nephew Chad A. Wilson, also of Georgetown, had cut several pieces of copper wire from the irrigation system before fleeing.

Both men turned themselves in Tuesday and were charged with criminal mischief over $5,000, second-degree conspiracy, theft under $1,500 and third-degree criminal trespass. They were released on $5,000 unsecured bail.
