Indictment in Md. copper theft plot

A federal grand jury has indicted an Annapolis man on charges of theft in an alleged plot to steal copper cables worth more than $300,000.

The indictment against 54-year-old Levon Smith was returned on Tuesday. Smith was arrested on Thursday.

According to the five-count indictment, Smith worked at AAI Corp. The federal government bought copper cables and other wire and stored the equipment at AAI.

The indictment alleges that Smith took cables stored at AAI and sold them to a recycling center for cash.
