YOUNGSTOWN — Felony theft warrants were filed today in municipal court against a Youngstown Wastewater Department worker who is a suspect in the theft of about 30 steel road plates from the department while he was on duty.

Joseph Campana, 40, is accused of taking the plates.

A police report said the plates have gone missing from October until late last month. They are valued at $1,000 apiece.

The plates were then taken to a Wilson Avenue scrap yard on the East Side to be sold.

Campana has not yet been taken into custody.
