Man Tries to Recycle 400 Pounds of Stolen Signs

St. George officers responded to Dixie Metal Recycling on a report of “suspicious scrap metal sales.” The recycling business reported buying 435 pounds of construction signs from 33-year-old Randolph Ronald Schmitz. The signs were marked as belonging to Wadsworth Brothers Construction. Police contacted the construction company who said there was no reason the signs, with an estimated value of $2,274, according to the statement, would have been sold as scrap, and that they were stolen. When police spoke with Schmitz, he told them he “found them in a dumpster and decided to sell them,” the arresting officer wrote in the statement. Schmitz was arrested and booked into the Washington County Purgatory Correctional Facility. He was charged with third-degree felony theft for possession of stolen property with a value greater than $1,500.
