Local man arrested for metal theft

Ennis police received a report of three men breaking down metal in a field in the 500 block of Village Drive Thursday afternoon, according to Det. Sgt. Mike Hopson.
Hopson said he responded to the scene and found the men to be taking metal from an air conditioner, along with metal from a meat cutter and table. The men were taken into custody and transported to Ennis police department without further incident. Following the group’s arrest, police discovered the location from where the items had been taken.
Hopson said once in custody one of the suspect’s confessed to police that he was responsible for breaking into the building and stealing the items. The man informed authorities that the other two men were only asked to help transport the items and were not aware the items had been obtained illegally.
According to Hopson the other two unnamed men were released from the jail and not charged with any crime.
Andrew Rojas, 41, of Ennis was charged with burglary of a building.
