Re: Copper thefts
Yeah, they definitely steal it to get the scrap price. It's a big problem
everywhere. Luckily some copper thieves are dumb enough to try to remove
copper from high voltage lines. This usually works to stop them from
continuing to steal copper. I have a vehicle that runs on 330v. That would
wake up a copper thief. But, I wonder what can be done to prevent or
discourage this theft? Maybe not much since ICE cars are stolen all of the
time and sent to chop shops.
