Two Arrested for Solo Cup Copper Theft

Baltimore County Police arrested two men who stole copper wire from the Solo Cup property Sunday.

Baltimore County Police have charged a Baltimore man and a Randallstown man with stealing copper wire from the Solo Cup property on Reisterstown Road in Owings Mills Sunday.

Daryl Boykin, 47, of Baltimore, and Romarise Thomas Scott, 46, of Randallstown, are charged with second-degree burglary, fourth-degree burglary and trespassing, according to a police report.

The men were caught behind 10 Music Fair Road dragging copper wire off the vacant Solo Cup plant property at 10100 Reisterstown Road Sunday, Nov. 4, around 3:15 a.m. They had approximately $10,000 worth of 500 MCM copper wire, police said.

The Solo Cup property is slated to become Foundry Row, a Wegmans-anchored development, which will be built by developer Greenberg Gibbons. Opposing developers have bankrolled an effort to bring the zoning decision to referendum on the 2014 ballot.

It would be great if this property was actually used for something instead of sitting vacant...would be a perfect place for a Wegmans.

These guys had enough energy to drag stolen large cables to their truck for scrapping, but not enough energy to work a legitimate job hauling cables from a truck to the site for a construction project. Goes to show that all the job training given to bums in jail does no good at all. Criminals are not lazy, they just like doing things illegally.
