Copper Thieves Cause $7,000 in Damage to Murphy Village Home

web posted December 18, 2013

MERRIWETHER A field representative for a Branch Bank and Trust company called the Edgefield County Sheriff's Office Monday to report upon arriving for an inspection the representative noticed the HVAC unit had been torn apart and all copper cut from the unit. It was not until a deputy arrived on the scene that the full magnitude of the theft was discovered.

After arriving the deputy was told that the person or persons also tried to gain access to the home through a sliding glass door but was unsuccessful. He also stated that the door to the crawl space had been removed and he replaced it and secured it. The deputy asked if the representative had inspected underneath the house, which he replied no.

Upon further inspection it was learned that the copper piping underneath the home had been cut and stolen as well. The total estimated damage was placed at $7,000, but could go higher.

An investigator was called to the scene and took over the investigation.
