Copper Thieves Make Off With $50,000 in Wire From Interstate 15

Posted April 2nd, 2013 @ 10:53am by Talk Radio 105.7 FM / 570 AM

Copper thieves have carried out the largest heist ever, against the Utah Department of Transportation.

UDOT officials say about $50,000 worth of copper wire has been stolen from light poles, in the I-15 corridor -- from 10th to 18th North -- in the Salt Lake Valley.

Until the wiring is replaced, driving that portion of the freeway at night will be more dangerous, as the lights remain out.
