Copper Thieves Strike Another Johnston Building

web posted December 11, 2013

JOHNSTON Copper thieves have targeted another building on Monday stealing copper tubing from inside and outside of the building. Johnston Police received a call reporting possible vandalism around 2:30 pm on the 300 block of Addison Street. The officer arrived and found the HVAC unit outside of the building ripped apart and all of the copper tubing stripped from the unit.

The officer checked the back door and it was unlocked. He cleared the building and noticed that discovered window units ripped apart and the copper tubing removed. Further investigation found that HVAC unit inside the home had also been stripped of its copper pipes. In all, about $3,000 in damages were left behind.

The officer noted two pairs of footprints on the dusty floor that appeared to have been made by wet shoes. They were photographed as evidence.

The officer also found an ID card laying on the floor. The officer asked the owner if she knew the individual on the card and she did not. He asked if when the business was operating did they ever take ID cards and was told they did not. The ID cards was also seized as evidence.

After the scene was processed the evidence was turned over to investigations.
