A Cantonment man is accused of stealing metal roofing from a yard and selling it to a recycling company at a fraction of its value.
Joshua Lamar Barlow, 44, was charged with fraudulently verifying ownership to a secondhand dealer, dealing in stolen property and petit theft.
Barlow allegedly stole aluminum roofing that was piled in the victim’s yard. A neighbor watched the theft occur and positively identified Barlow from a lineup.
He then sold the metal to a recycler for $15.98, providing his identification and fingerprint, according to an arrest report.
The metal roofing was valued at $600.
Barlow was booked into the Escambia County Jail with bond set at $8,000, but he has an outstanding hold from Santa Rosa County, according to jail records.
