Wanted: Copper thieves caught on tape

Authorities hope surveillance photos will help them track down some chronic copper thieves.

According to the McMinn County Sheriff's Office, around $250,000 dollars worth of copper has been stolen from Resolute Forest Products over the past couple of months.

Investigators say the first reported theft was on March 14, when more than two-thousand feet of copper wire was stolen, and the thieves kept coming back. They believe the suspects are coming onto the property from Highway 163.

If you have any information, you are asked to call 423-745-5620 ext. 102.
