CLARKSTON, WA - A third man allegedly involved in stealing up to $8,000 worth of copper tubing and air conditioning parts from a Clarkston business last month has been arrested. Thirty-one-year-old Darin Lee Loyd of Lewiston is being held on a $50,000 bond after being taken into custody on a warrant for 1st-Degree Theft and 1st-Degree Trafficking Stolen Property. He was also arrested on a Failure to Appear Warrant for 1st-Degree Burglary With a Firearm Enhancement.

According to court documents, 23-year-old Kenneth Harper of Lewiston, who is Loyd's brother, was previously booked into the Asotin County Jail on charges of 1st-Degree Burglary, 1st-Degree Theft, and 1st-Degree Trafficking Stolen Property; and 18-year-old Zaryc Moran-Stotz of Clarkston was arrested by Lewiston Police after he allegedly robbed a gas station in the 800 block of 16th Avenue in Lewiston while wearing a mask.

Probable Cause Affidavits say the men allegedly went to Lazer Heating and Air Conditioning in the 1300 block of 15th Street at around 2:44 a.m. on the morning of August 26th and proceeded to load rolls of copper tubing into the trunk of a black 2009 Pontiac Vibe with a Clearwater County license plate. An hour later, the men returned in the car and again loaded copper tubing and other items into the car, the affidavit says. Loyd was reportedly the driver.

The copper tubing and air conditioning parts were allegedly sold to a local salvage yard for $560.
