An Oklahoma City man is accused of stealing $5,000 worth of copper from his employer and selling it, Oklahoma City police reported Monday.

Alfred Allen Engst, 49, was arrested Thursday on an embezzlement complaint.

Workers at Prop Management Services Inc., 1411 Linwood Blvd., told a police officer Engst was taking copper from the company's stock and selling it to scrap yards, according to the police report.

Engst had been working for the company since September. When his co-workers confronted him about the copper, he confessed, according to the report.

Engst was convicted in 2006 for embezzling $250,000 cash from General Growth and Management Services. Engst told police he also was convicted of burglary.

Engst was booked into the Oklahoma County jail and bail was set at $4,000, jail officials said Monday.
