Copper stolen from construction site
An electrician discovered Monday that more than $40,000 worth of copper had been stolen from the construction site of Integra Creeks Apartments while crew members were on vacation during the Thanksgiving Day holiday weekend.
The employee of Adkins Electric told officers a large storage unit at the construction site, located in the 3600 block of Manson Pike, had been burglarized some time between the evening of Nov. 21 and Monday morning, according to a Murfreesboro Police Department incident report.
Police believe the suspects may have used a Sawzall reciprocating saw to gain entry to the storage unit, which contained two large containers of copper, and likely fled the scene in a heavy-duty, four-wheel drive truck.
Additional information about whether detectives have identified any possible suspects was not included in the report.
As of Wednesday, no one had been arrested or charged in connection with the incident, and the matter remains under investigation.
