The Meigs County Sheriff’s Office is asking for assistance in identifying individuals.

On March 2, 2023 Meigs County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the Yellowbush Mine after 911 received a call from employees of the mine stating that two individuals were stealing copper in the mine and caught the thieves on camera.
