Copper stolen from new judicial center site

  • Follow News

Workers at the site of the new Augusta Judicial Center reported Monday that thieves stole two rolls of copper wiring from a storeroom on the Ninth Street property.

A Richmond County sheriff’s report states that the items were taken from the second floor and that an electrician said the room was not secured because it’s a storage and workroom for employees.

The more than 500 feet of wiring is valued at $190, the report stated.

Grinder48 thats funny, but

Grinder48 thats funny, but $190 is the value of the copper wire, not the cost to the county government. $190x5 is the more accurate figure. Maybe the crook after he/she is caught can be the first case heard there at the new judicial center as case of poetic justice.

I guess the concept of "secure all copper materials" is just too difficult to accomplish.

I think the public needs to know who was responsible for keeping the material safe. If this was worth reporting it is worth a follow up of parties involved in this crime, and what is going to be done about how to keep the taxpayers investment safe. Maybe hire a night watchman but don't let the water department do the hiring.

They have to sell it at salvage--should be easy to find. Nothing is going to stop the stealing until cops start arresting these salvage operators.

stickman: for your

stickman: for your information, the scrap dealers in this town work hand-in-hand with the police. funny thing is more often than not when a yard calls the detectives they are told to take a picture of the material. why? Two years ago there was a detective on the job that would be there in minutes and most times an arrest would follow, or he would show up and question the sellers about where they got the material and if they could give h8m a phone number to verify it. now there is very little response from the police. arrest the scrap dealers? PLEASE! get the cops to do their job!
