No one, it seems, is immune from the scourge of copper theft.
This weekend a Kansas City police radio tower was the target of thieves who made off with an estimated $12,000 worth of wiring and other metal items.
The theft in the 6800 block of Booth Avenue in the south-central part of the city was discovered Saturday morning. An officer checking the tower site discovered that a chain used to secure the gate had been cut and the gate was open.
Police discovered that a “large amount” of wiring and other items were missing.
