Investigators say on December 13, Douglas broke into Fairfield Electric Cooperative at 701 Blythewood Road. According to deputies, he took 300 feet of number six copper, 200 feet of 1/0 copper, and 200 feet of 4/0 copper with an estimated value of $2,500.

On December 6, officers say he went to the SCE&G site at 10770 Farrow Road. Officers say he cut a hole in the fence and stole 685 pounds of copper from four trucks. The copper had an estimated value of $5,000.
