2 Red Bluff women and a Gerber man were arrested Friday after they tried to sell stolen scrap metal to Richfield Recycling.
A witness saw three individuals loading the scrap metal into a white pickup from behind a barn located on the corner of River Road and Olive Avenue, owned by a 45-year-old Corning man.
The witness then followed the pickup to the recycling yard and called the property owner.
Police arrived at Richfield Recycling and the victim was able to identify $165 worth of scrap metal the three suspects were trying to sell.
Julie Marie Dewitt, 31 and Danielle Joyce Pennell, 25 were arrested along with 23-year-old Blake Larsen and charged with possession of stolen property.
Bail for each was $15,000.
