POLK COUNTY, TX (KTRE) –  Authorities say Robert Robinson, 37, was caught on camera stealing copper wire from a Polk Co. oil field last week.

That oil field was hit four times, four days in a row. Authorities say it's unclear if Robinson was involved in all four thefts. For now, he's charged with theft of copper.

If convicted, Robinson could spend two years in state jail.
