Erie County Sheriff Timothy B. Howard reports the theft of approximately 80 feet of copper wire feeding power to a residence in Grand Island.
Last week a resident of the Leisure Living complex on Grand Island Boulevard reported they did not have power to the dwelling. National Grid sent a service team to the residence only to discover that the power lines were cut near the roof of the building. The thieves entered the building and pulled the wires through the wall.
The value of the 80 feet of wire has not been determined and the Sheriff’s Office is continuing its investigation of the theft.
