Thieves Make Off with $100K of Copper Wiring From County Parks
Anne Arundel County Police spokesman Justin Mulcahy said detectives are working closely with representatives from Rec and Parks on a daily basis regarding the exchange of information and security suggestions. They are also in touch with area scrap metal dealers to make them aware of the issue.
The email from Rec and Parks said the money used to replace the stolen wire is depleting the Department’s Parks Renovation budget.
Anyone that sees suspicious activity at county schools, parks or utility sites can call the Southern District Police Station 410-222-1960 or 911. Police, particularly those on the midnight shift, have made this a priority investigation.
For your safety, do not touch any lighting poles or electric poles that have been tampered with and do not approach any suspicious individuals in the parks.
