Copper Theft Police Reports

Home Copper Theft Police Reports


Don’t assume you’re not a target! In this hard hit economy, it takes a thief less than 3 minutes to take what they want from the unit or simply take the whole thing. Thieves do not discriminate, they are stealing from large commercial businesses, homes in gated communities, churches, schools, rooftops and even from their own neighbors AC units. This has turned into an addictive, easy money making business according to reports. It is just too easy.
