900 block E. Main St.


Laura Beth Friedman, age 38, Madison
Angel L. Williams, age 30, Madison
Both women were cited for Theft.


A concerned citizen captured images on his cell phone of two women taking pieces of metal Monday afternoon. They air conditioning parts were next to a building in the 900 block of E. Main St. and the women were loading them into a trailer. The witness took down the plate number of the SUV that was towing it, and called the building's owner. He learned the women did not have permission to take the metal, so he called police. Thanks to the plate information, and the photos, a sergeant was able to locate the women at a South Side recycling center. Both said they were "scrapping" and thought the property was abandoned. It was not, and the owner valued it at $1,000. The suspects were cited for theft.
