Stealing Metal, Trio Sets Fire

In Cherokee County one crime led to another and three are in custody. Police say 21 year-old Adam McGee, 18 year-old Joseph Lindsey and 21 year-old Brittany Crawford from Cedartown Georgia, went to a property off US Highway 441 North to steal scrap metal. But their vehicle got stuck in the mud and as they gunned the engine to try to fee it, the exhaust pipe caught brush on fire and it spread quickly. The fire destroyed several vehicles and a box van and burned a wooded area before it was put out. The trio was caught walking down the road away from the fire.
