Reward Offered For Info On Copper Wire Theft

Mississippi Power and the Hattiesburg Police Department are looking for the thieves who stole more than 6,000 pounds of copper and aluminum wire from a substation. The materials, along with an 18 foot trailer, were discovered missing last Sunday morning.

Investigators say those responsible broke into the gate around the substation to gain access to the wire.

Because of the building boom since Katrina, the price of copper wiring has increased dramatically. Police are not saying how much the stolen copper is worth.

A reward is being offered to anyone with information leading to the arrest of those responsible. If you have any information, call Crimestoppers at (601) 582-STOP or Hattiesburg Police at (601) 544-7800.
