COPPER STOLEN FROM OFFLINE SUBSTATION

July 27, 2011

 

Aberdeen police are investigating the theft of copper from one of the district substations. The theft from the Market and “A” Street station was discovered on Tuesday morning. Captain John Green says at some point between Sunday afternoon and Tuesday morning, the suspect or suspects cut through fencing and took the copper from the grounding wire and a small quantity of copper was also removed from the main electrical apparatus in the center of the substation. Green says the thieves were fortunate since the station was off-line or they may have been injured or killed. Anyone with information should call 533 3180 or the department tip line at 538 4450.
