Baltimore County Police have charged a Baltimore man and a Randallstown man with stealing copper wire from the Solo Cup property on Reisterstown Road in Owings Mills Sunday.

Daryl Boykin, 47, of Baltimore, and Romarise Thomas Scott, 46, of Randallstown, are charged with second-degree burglary, fourth-degree burglary and trespassing, according to a police report.

The men were caught behind 10 Music Fair Road dragging copper wire off the vacant Solo Cup plant property at 10100 Reisterstown Road Sunday, Nov. 4, around 3:15 a.m. They had approximately $10,000 worth of 500 MCM copper wire, police said.

The Solo Cup property is slated to become Foundry Row, a Wegmans-anchored development, which will be built by developer Greenberg Gibbons. Opposing developers have bankrolled an effort to bring the zoning decision to referendum on the 2014 ballot.
