POCOLA, Okla. — Oklahoma authorities say a man was found dead at an electrical transfer box at a concrete mill in Pocola and that the victim was likely stealing copper when he was killed.

Pocola police say a woman called for help regarding a man being down about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday. The caller also noted that electricity had gone out around the casino in Pocola.

Police in Sebastian County, Ark., said the investigation revealed the 38-year-old victim had an accomplice in the purported attempted copper theft. Police said they are looking for 45-year-old Chuck Allen Weir, who is 5-11, 180 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes. Police say he has relatives in Pocola and in the Arkansas River Valley area.

When caught, he should be charged in the death of his partner during commission of a felony. (Partner got what he deserved.)
