Creepy Crawly Wire Thieves
Seattle police caught an intruder at a construction site on Monday after our Operator saw the suspect crawling out from underneath a truck and crawling under the other side of it. She dispatched the police, who then caught not only the original suspect but an accomplice as well. The site responder called back later and advised that $12,000 worth of damage from wire stripping was found on the vehicles. While that’s no small sum, he noted that the crooks had only gotten to two or three of the 12 vehicles on the site before the police arrived, preventing around $60,000 in additional damage.
