A recent “rash” of copper thefts in the city prompted Police Chief Chris Atkins to ask the city council, and Lawrenceburg citizens as well, to look out for suspicious activity.
Atkins reported the recent increase of copper thefts in the city during a departmental report at the city council’s Monday meeting.
“They’re targeting specific items outside of residences and businesses,” Atkins said at the meeting.
The police department is currently investigating 11 cases of copper thefts that occurred over a week period, Atkins said.
