Police Look For Thieves Stealing Copper From Vacant Homes

Posted:

JACKSON, Mich. (WLNS) - Police are looking for the people who tried to steal old copper pipes from empty buildings.

It happened Tuesday on the 500 block of West Ganson.

Police say they're seeing fewer cases of copper theft as the city demolishes vacant houses, but the Blackman-Leoni Department of Public Safety says it receives reports like these weekly.

Officers in the community work with companies in the area that process copper to identify people trying to sell copper pipes. Thieves want the copper to sell to scrap dealers.
