Officials Crack Down Harder On Copper Thefts


A bigger Crimestoppers reward is just one part of a more intense crackdown on copper thefts.

 

The thefts… in which thieves are making off with several hundred dollars worth of copper, but are often causing thousands of dollars in damage to get it… have been on the rise for years. 

 

Crimestoppers hopes bumping the reward to $500 for tips that lead to the arrest of copper thieves will put a dent in the effort.  And Springfield police say they’ve identified dozens of suspects through sting operations and other techniques.
