State Police have arrested a Seaford man in connection with a theft of irrigation wire from the Bridgeville area. Police stopped 40 year old Ronnie Rust and found him with stolen irrigation wire after they’d seen his truck along the side of Apple Tree Road with a rag hanging out the window to give the impression it was a disabled vehicle. The same area has seen several thefts of copper wiring. A short time later the same truck was seen leaving the area and police stopped the vehicle, which contained several spools of irrigation wire in the open truck bed. Rust was also found with .2 grams of cocaine. He’s being held in default of $10,500 secured bond.
