Copper Thieves Cause Extensive Damage In Lincoln Home

Copper thieves cause $40,000 in damage to an unoccupied home on the 500 block of F Street. A property management employee discovered holes in walls and floors and insulation scattered throughout the home as thieves attempted to get to the copper piping and electrical wiring.

The loss is valued at just $250. A company spokesman says they think the home will have to be torn down and rebuilt because of the damage to floors and walls in every room.
