LONOKE COUNTY, AR - A Cabot man has been arrested in a scrap metal theft case.
Ricky Ruby, 44, was picked up on Friday night after the Lonoke County Sheriff's Office (LCSO) investigated a report of someone at an abandoned residence on Vice Lane.
That's where the LCSO says deputies caught Ruby in the process of loading scrap metal from the residence into his truck.
He told the deputies he did not know who owned the property, and was just trying to be nice and help cleanup the neighborhood.
Ruby has been charged with criminal trespass and theft of property.
