Copper Wire Theft

Thieves made off with a large amount of copper wire "runs" from an AT&T storage unit in South Arcadia. Sometime during the course of the last month, the suspect(s) gained entry to the unit by unknown means and took spools of wire and also cut portions of wire from the wall. The wire can be sold as scrap for profit. The crime was reported earlier today. Wire theft seems to be a growing trend in the SGV. The Tribune just ran a story on the theft of wire from a local little league field as well as a story on the conviction of a man for wire theft.
