Don't expect him to post a deputy full time but it would be nice if something could be done, I live up there without a phone and "no" cellphone service because they won't put up a tower. God forbid anyone needs an ambulance or emergency personel no way of reaching them, this is getting old, I hope they catch the losers!!!!!

The only way copper thieves will stop is if junk and scrap yards STOP BUYING IT! Thats what they need to do, because if not hard working people are going to continue to be robbed
Sad face what a shame
