Stock Island – A Key West man was caught as he was trying to steal pieces of metal from a business on Stock Island.
One of the managers of F & W Fencing on 3rd Avenue was riding her bike to work just before noon Monday when she heard clanking metal coming from the fenced area owned by the business. When she stopped to check on it she saw 49 year old Serafin Alvarez picking up pieces of metal and throwing them over the fence. She called her husband, who is the other business manager; he responded and began talking to Alvarez as his wife called the Sheriff’s Office.
When Deputy Kim Trullender arrived, Alvarez was still on the scene. He was placed under arrest, charged with burglary and he was taken to jail.
