Police wired in on finding owner of copper load

Investigators are hoping information from the public will help them track down the rightful owner of a large coil of heavy-duty copper wire found in a Sahali backyard on the weekend.

Learned said the discovery was made just after 5 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 17, when a woman living in a house on Carmel Court noticed the copper on her property.

She called police, who determined it was likely stolen from a construction site or work truck.

Learned said investigators haven’t been able to link the wire to any recent reports of stolen copper, but think its unique characteristics and markings will make it easily identifiable.

Anyone with information about the theft or wire is asked to call police at 250-828-3000.
