Auburn police investigate large copper theft near airport | Crime
AUBURN, CA - Auburn police have security camera photos of three people they'd like to put names to who may be connected to a large copper theft in town.
Sgt. Michael Garlock says officers were called to a building complex on the 2300 block of Lindbergh Street last Wednesday and again on Thursday. There they found copper pipes had been stripped from the walls and ceilings of four buildings.
Garlock said it appeared several people were involved in the thefts which took place in the late night and early morning hours. Investigators believe the thieves were at one of the structures for approximately seven hours.
A dollar figure for the copper loss and replacement hasn't been determined yet.
Anyone who recognizes the individuals in the accompanying picture was asked to contact detectives at (530) 823-4237, ext. 221.
