Stolen Copper recovered - 144 tons of it

"U.S. border enforcement agents and the Arizona Department of Public
Safety said Tuesday that an investigation into the September theft of
copper from a mining facility in Hayden, Ariz., has led to the
recovery at the Port of Los Angeles of 144 tons of stolen copper
ingots about to be shipped to China.
Worth $1.25 million, the ingots are unrefined copper that contain
traces of gold and silver and
weigh 806 pounds apiece. The 359 ingots were covered with a black
powder-like substance which camouflaged the their true color,
according to investigators."
