Second arrest made in power line theft

A second man police say was involved in the theft of some 30 spans of Duke Energy power lines on Wednesday was arrested Thursday following a traffic stop.

According to GCSO investigators, a tip was received that the second suspect in the theft was driving down Highway 25 S near Highway 178. Investigators located the vehicle and initiated a traffic stop. Inside the vehicle was Marty Lee Vaughn, 32, of 108 Vaughn Drive in Belton. Investigators suspected Vaughn was involved in the theft after finding a man they believe to be his accomplice, Samuel Carter, in a truck that was backed into the woods near where the theft took place. The person to whom the truck was registered told investigators that Vaughn was in possession of the vehicle. Carter was arrested Wednesday morning in connection with the incident.

According to reports from GCSO, Carter implicated both himself and Vaughn in the theft of 30 spans of wire on Highway 178 and Hamilton Road that totaled about $21,000. Carter also said the two had committed other thefts in Greenwood County and that he had committed some thefts by himself. Both men have been charged with damage to real property to obtain nonferrous metals, value $5,000 or greater. That felony charge carries a sentence of up to 10 years in prison and a fine that the court deems appropriate. The two men are expected to receive additional charges following their confession to multiple thefts throughout the county.
