Seattle police say two would-be metal thieves were arrested early this morning after they were caught in the act.

A security guard spotted the two men at around  2:13 a.m. as they were piling metal near a fence at a steel company in the 4500 block of Colorado Avenue South.  Officers were summoned and stopped the men as they tried to flee.

The men, ages 43 and 61, were booked into King County Jail for investigation of burglary.
