OWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) -- A western Kentucky man has been charged with picking up three loads of aluminum products from a Virginia company and scraping the cargo for about $150,000 at an Owensboro recycling center.

Kentucky State Police Trooper Corey King says 30-year-old James Scott Hale of Philpot, Ky., drove to Virginia in December and picked up the loads. King was unsure how Hale was able to pick up all three loads. King says the investigation is ongoing.

Trucking company officials told troopers they received a call from Virginia inquiring about the three loads. The owner of the Owensboro company said they were not contracted to pick up freight from the Virginia business.

Hale is being held in the Daviess County Detention Center in Owensboro. Jail records did not list an attorney.
