Copper Thieves Strike In Boca Raton

BOCA RATON, FL ( — It is one of the fastest growing areas of crime nationwide, and it is happening here in Boca Raton. Police tell us that someone broke into a house under construction at 823 NE 71st Street. Police learned that copper wiring and plumbing had been removed. No one was in the house or, more accurately, at the house at the time of the burglary which apparently happened sometime between October 25th and October 30th.

Just last week, local media reported that stolen copper is being traded for crack in Miami.
