Two Knox Count men have been charged with stealing more than half a ton of aluminum from an automotive factory, Laurel County Sheriff John Root said in a news release.
Police arrested Eric York, 39, and Josh Jenkins, 19, both of Gray, on Thursday and charged them with felony theft, according to the release.
Police say the two stole 1,485 pounds of aluminum from the Aisin Automotive Casting plant in London on Feb. 13.
The metal apparently was sold at a scrap yard, according to the news release.
More arrests are expected, Root said.
