SHERMAN -- One man is in jail after authorities say he was caught trying to steal copper wire in Sherman.

Sherman police say a worker at the UPS office called police after hearing metal being cut.

When officers arrived to a warehouse in the 4700 block of Fallon Drive, they searched for a suspect and then arrested 17-year-old Martin Ray Carter after chasing him on foot.

Officers found copper removed from air conditioning units, causing several dollars worth of damage.

Officers also found Carter's car with the tubing inside.

Carter was taken to the Grayson County Jail where he remains on a $2,500 bond.

    I agree 100% with Sherman Mom. Where are his parnets, If I had done something like that when I was 17 my father would have beat the life out of me, and then made me go and fix it!

    Let's give him "love thought" in jail for a while. No anger or hate - only justice.

    this boy is but a YOUNG MAN and has made a mistake-- a costly one he will pay dearly on -maybe this time will help him in the future.But dont automatically assume all people -or kids- do things for the same reasons--lets give him love thought-- not more anger and hate. Im appalled at the comments here

    IF THE LAW COULD ONLY TAKE THE THEIVES AND DOPEERS OUT AND HANG THEM LIKE THEY DID IN THE OLD DAYS MAYBE THERE WOULD BE LESS OF THEM, MAYBE.

    Would the money the thief makes from stealing the copper pay his bail, remove this mark from his record, make people think more of him?

    Wonderful, this may help with lowering the price of building a house.
