CHLORIDE - Two Mohave County men were arrested Wednesday and charged with multiple theft-related counts after they allegedly burglarized a Chloride mining business three times in one week. One of them reportedly sold some of the stolen items to a Kingman recycling center.

Bradley Wesley Campbell, 35, of White Hills and Samuel Robert Millim, 26, of Dolan Springs were taken into custody after deputies reportedly found 20 lead plates and a sheet of stainless steel in the cargo area of an SUV Campbell was driving south on Old Boulder Highway.

The men were taken into custody sometime after 7:30 p.m. and the victim identified the items as his.

Mohave County Sheriff's deputies learned the men had left the business in the 8000 block of Old Boulder Highway and pulled over Campbell based on a description of his vehicle. They were taken into custody and each was charged with felony third-degree burglary.

The victim told deputies that thieves targeted his business on Monday and Tuesday when they took a number of copper-lead anodes. Those items, according to sheriff's office spokeswoman Trish Carter, were recovered at Campbell's residence.

The investigation reportedly determined that Millim sold some of the items to a Kingman recycling center on Wednesday.

Both were also charged with two felony counts of theft and two of burglary. Millim was also charged with felony trafficking in stolen property. The value of the plates was roughly $5,000.

As it takes two to tango, it takes at least two to make a burglary successful the burglar and the place to fence their loot. Just because some commentators here are looking at the recycling center doesn't mean they are no longer looking at the burglars. All variables of a crime need to be identified and eliminated, if possible.

Aww these guys are the victims obviously. If the Recycling place was not open these two fine specimens of people would of never became thieves. How dare the recycling center do that to these good gentlemen. Clearly not there fault. You people are hilarious. Guessing you've never been a victim of people like this. Stop blaming everyone else for our mistakes. Everyday its someone else's fault.

I would be willing to bet it was the recycler that called and notified police of these two.

If I'm not mistaken, the recycling center can and should be held accountable for buying "hot" merchandise. There would be fewer scrap metal thefts around here if the Sheriff made it impossible to sell the stuff without getting busted....Makes sense to me.

Why isn't the recycling center NAMED and charged? Surely, the uniqueness of the items would cause the recycling center to ask questions and/or call the police. Because of the inaction of the center, it makes things look suspect.

When will recyclers be held accountable for buying "hot" merchandise? They have to know when folks come in day after day with items that aren't usually "found" in the normal household that much of it is stolen. Fine them for each stolen article they traffic in.

I think that law enforcement really needs to focus on the root of the problem with these metal thefts, and that is the recycling center itself.
If they were more stringent( or actually follow the rules in the first place, in the case of one business in particular) these thieves would have no place to sell the stolen metal.

Would like to know how the Recycling center handled the purchase of the items from these men and the reporting of it since the new laws took effect affecting them. ???
