A former Williamson Daily News worker accused of stealing a copper part from the newspaper’s press faces new grand larceny charges.
Former press operator Jason Alan Worley of Canada, Ky., is charged with stealing copper cable from a Norfolk-Southern railyard in Williamson on Feb. 8, the newspaper reported.
A surveillance camera showed a man later identified as Worley allegedly removing copper cable from a reel. The cable was valued at $2,671, according to a criminal complaint filed by Norfolk-Southern Special Agent J.D. Farley.
Worley, 30, is free on $5,000 bond after being arraigned Thursday by Mingo County Magistrate Pam Newsome, the newspaper reported.
There was no telephone listing for Worley in the Canada area.
He was charged Tuesday with grand larceny in connection with the theft of a copper roller from the newspaper.
