Rash Of Copper Thefts And Vandalism Keeping Morehead Police Busy

A rash of copper thefts and vandalism have been keeping police in one eastern Kentucky city busy.

Officers say vandals broke into this concession stand, at Morehead's Greenhill City Park.

It's the same place where just a month ago, someone went into the restrooms with a hammer and destroyed the fixtures.

In another case, police say someone stole 1,000 feet of copper wire at a construction site, not long after it had been installed.

Morehead police have not made arrests in either case, but they have added patrols around construction sites around Morehead.

    If the police want to stop this behaviour, start concentrating on the people that are buying the scrap. I recently had a catalytic converter cut off my car while it was in the lot of a well respected repairman in Morehead. Now how many people will walk into a place that buys scrap with 5 catalytic converters, or a thousand feet of wire? The answer is with scrap buyers, Try starting there mpd
