Jackson County, Florida - October 4, 2011 -

On October 3, 2011, the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a theft at a cell phone tower located on State Road 69 South of Grand Ridge, Florida. Responding deputies observed that a large amount of copper wiring had been stolen from the site. Further investigation revealed that copper stolen from this site had been sold on the same date to a local recycling facility. Records obtained from the recycling facility enabled deputies to identify Christopher Dominy as a suspect in the case. Further investigation revealed that Christopher Dominy had committed thefts at eight separate cell phone tower sites, resulting in thousands of dollars in damage at each site. Dominy sold the stolen copper from each theft to a local recycling facility. Christopher Dominy has been charged with burglary, grand theft and eight counts of dealing in stolen property. This investigation is ongoing and further charges are pending in this case.

      Dude I have been in the pipe trades since 1983. These folks over here in Leon, not Taylor, wanted to start taking my picture when I brought in scrap. I told them NO with a big N and a big O! They wanted to photograph my DL, too! Let's just say that the salvage company has lost. Whatever I have as refuse or scrap, goes straight to the landfill! I love it! They lose, and I put it back in the Earth to use later.

        What are you afraid of..Honest people do not worry about verifying who they are..This is all about stopping some of the thievery going on. Don't take it personal..You prove who you are when you buy a gun, it keeps crooks from walking into a store and purchasing a weapon..
