Pittsburgh police used surveillance video and interviews with scrap dealers to charge a man with the Aug. 25 theft of four cast iron sewer grates from a car wash along Stayton Street.

Police on Thursday arrested Garrett William Lucas, 24, of Brighton Heights on charges of stealing the sewer grates, which are valued at $1,000.

The operator of a metal scrap yard on Neville Island told investigators that Lucas has scrapped more than $50,000 in stolen property, according to police.
