Yakima, Wash -- A Wapato metal yard employee has been arrested on suspicion of trafficking in stolen property.   

Yakima County Sheriff's Deputies raided Mid-Valley Recycling and found road signs, cemetery vases and cooper wire.

One employee was arrested and deputies said the owner will likely be arrested when he returns from an out of state trip.

Deputies also said the raid was another step in their campaign to stop drug users from taking metal and selling it.
