KANSAS CITY | Copper thieves strike police tower
No one, it seems, is immune from the scourge of copper theft.
Over the weekend, a Kansas City police radio tower was the target of thieves who made off with an estimated $12,000 worth of wiring and other metal items.
The theft in the 6800 block of Booth Avenue was discovered Saturday morning. The theft did not affect radio service or the functioning of the system.
If they can get stolen from without notice, what’s to say it can’t happen to … ummmm … people who are sound asleep after having had a few. Just a thought.
