Jasper County Sheriff’s Department Lieutenant Scotty Duncan said on Thursday that a man named in arrest warrants related to a large theft case in the far southern end of the county is still at-large.

According to Duncan, the investigation began in late September when it was discovered that large amounts of metal, copper wire, batteries, and other types of industrial equipment had been stolen from buildings and properties in and around Evadale.

Duncan said that some of the stolen items have been recovered.

The name of the suspect has not been released pending arrest and arraignment.
