HERMISTON, Ore. -- A pair of Irrigon residents were found walking in a field with $3,000 worth of stolen metal in their loaded-down pickup truck.

The East Oregonian reports the pickup was loaded too heavily to drive away.

A Hermiston police officer found 25-year-old James Riley and 38-year-old Christina Kettlewell in a field next to an irrigation materials supply company.

They were charged with first-degree theft.

Hermiston Police Lt. Jason Edmiston says the stolen metal was in a pile at the supply company.
