Stolen Copper Leads to Arrest

Janesville, IA – 700 feet of copper water line was stolen from a worksite in Janesville last week. The man responsible was arrested on Friday.

46-year-old Charles McManemy of Shell Rock allegedly stole this copper from the construction site. He was found with over 600 feet of it that led to his arrest. The copper was valued at almost $2,000.

McManemy has been charged with second-degree theft and possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver. He was also found to be violating his parole after he tried to use a device to help him with a urine test.

He is being held in Bremer County Jail on a $5,000 bond.
