Thefts of copper wire from industrial and agricultural sites were recently reported in Delta County.
Earlier this month, copper wire was stolen from the crushing plant at Benson Brothers Sand & Gravel in Orchard City.
The thieves also caused a considerable amount of damage to the crusher. During the same time frame, Bud Hawkins reported the theft of copper wire from an irrigation pivot on Peach Valley Road.
Salvage yards have been notified, but Delta County Sheriff Fred McKee believes a middleman may be taking the copper wire out of the area to sell. Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff's office at 874-2000.blog comments powered by Disqus
