ODESSA - New information on a story NewsWest 9 ran earlier this week.

It involves a man caught stealing copper out of the Lowe's Home Improvement store in Odessa.    

Turns out one of our NewsWest 9 viewer's recognized the man and that tip led to his arrest.

Odessa Crimestoppers tells NewsWest 9, 28-year-old Victor Galindo, Junior, was taken into custody on Thursday morning.

Surveillance cameras caught him taking three 500 foot rolls of copper from the Lowe's off 42nd Street and he was doing it all in broad daylight.

Galindo was booked into the Ector County Jail and now faces charges of theft.
