A western Kentucky man has been charged with picking up three loads of aluminum products from a Virginia company and scrapping the cargo for about $150,000 at an Owensboro recycling center.
Trucking company officials told troopers they received a call from Virginia inquiring about the three loads. The owner of the Owensboro company said they were not contracted to pick up freight from the Virginia business.
Hale is being held in the Daviess County Detention Center in Owensboro. Jail records did not list an attorney.
