More Copper Theft…

October 18th, 2011

Well, we have another day with another story of copper theft in Georgia.  As I have discussed several times, copper prices have almost doubled over the last couple of years, making it an attractive target for thieves.  The most recent target was a school system near Columbus, Georgia and the article states that over $100.000 of copper wire was stolen from a warehouse.  Here is the link to the article:

For those of us in the commercial security business, it is frustrating to see these types of thefts continue, especially when we know there are some very effective security measures that can be put in place for much less than $100,000.
