ST. CLOUD – Four men are facing felony charges after police say they found a large amount of stolen copper wire.

St. Cloud police say they found 27-year-old Luke Plemel of Sauk Rapids, 31-year-old Nathan Opatz, and 35-year-old Jerry Mensing of Waite Park in a parking lot on 7th Street North early Thursday morning.  They allegedly had a large amount of stolen copper wire and burglary tools.

The investigation led to a storage shed on Jackle Road in Rice.  Thirty-six year old Billy Quirk of Rice was also arrested near the storage shed.

Officers used a search warrant to discover about $15,000 worth of stolen copper wire, tools, electrical and plumbing supplies.

It’s believed the wire was stolen from several properties in the St. Cloud area.

Felony level receiving stolen property charges, among other charges, are pending.
