$2,500 Worth Of Copper Wiring Stolen From Verizon Shed

copper wiringPolice are investigating a break-in at the Verizon building on James Street, which resulted in the theft of approximately $2,500 worth of copper wiring, Detective Lieutenant Paul Daly said. The suspect apparently climbed over a fence and busted the shed at the warehouse, and made off with rolls of wiring.

Copper is a highly sough after material, Daly says. 

Last October, TLS reported about a theft on James Street construction site in which about $40,000 of copper was stolen.

In April last year, hundreds of pounds of copper was stolen from another James Street construction site.

In February last year, police investigated the theft of copper from several homes under construction. TLS.

  1. I hope they have cameras. If Verizon cant put up cameras then they almost deserve it.

    They are loaded out of their minds…put up some security cameras and focus them on your copper.

  2. The crazy part of this story is that the thiefs can only sell the copper for about $50 if they are lucky. People are willing to cause $50,000 worth of damage to get $500 worth of copper. Besides the issue of stealing which in itself is a disregard for others property, the fact that the way they are stealing somehow makes this type of crime more “anti-social”.

    When you hear a story where someone was shot or aasaulted and they stole $50,000 from the person in some (perhaps) warped way we react differently when we hear some one was shot or assaulted over a pair of sneakers.

    As I type this, I wonder if this sense of weighing levels of wrong or right, might in someway get ourselves into trouble at times.
