Kentucky State Police arrested four men Wednesday on charges of stealing metal storm debris in a restricted area of East Bernstadt in Laurel County. Troopers said that the four were seen taking tin and aluminum siding, which they apparently intended to sell for scrap. According to officers, the four men were allowed into the restricted area at East Bernstadt to assist with cleanup from last week's storms, and they had been directed to place debris by the edge of the roadway.
