Copper worth $20,000 stolen from building

About $20,000 worth of copper was discovered stolen on Saturday, January 30, from a Bloomfield Township business building, police said.

Bloomfield Township police responded about 3 p.m. to a commercial building at 2527 S. Telegraph Road for a theft complaint. The owner of the building told police that someone had taken eight copper cables from the building’s electrical transformer. The copper cables supply power to the building.

Police said the person responsible cut the cables in two places and pulled it from the ground. Each cable is about 100 feet in length. The cost to replace the cables is about $20,000.

Police ask anyone with information about the incident to contact the Bloomfield Township Police Department at 248.433.7755.
