After the recent increase in oilfield-related thefts, the task force set up surveillance cameras in local oilfield yards. The task force was watching footage from one of those cameras located in the 2300 block of Production Street when they caught a man trying to steal large sections of copper wire.
The suspect -- Darnell Duke -- was taken into custody. Duke, 40, faces federal felony theft charges.
The investigation continues and more arrests are pending.
