FORT MILL — A cunning man who hid a GPS device inside some building materials helped deputies and detectives arrest of a pair of Charlotte men accused of stealing thousands of dollars in building materials, according to a police report.
Late Thursday, officers with the York County Sheriffs Office responded to the Legacy Apartments complex under construction in Fort Mill, where the man told them the GPS he had put inside the materials was moving. Officers tracked the signal to a nearby intersection where police stopped a Ford truck. Deputies found eight rolls of rain barrier roofing material, vents, and 30 bundles of roofing shingles, along with the GPS tracking device.
Deputies charged Ernest Roland Bouchard, 46, and Jusheem Allah Broadhead, 35, with two counts of grand larceny and criminal conspiracy. Both remain jailed Saturday under $15,000 bond.
