I bet it was just the secondary wiring. They would have gotten much more scrap if they had stolen the transformer and the lines feeding it too...

There's been a real problem in this area with copper thieves stealing wiring, piping, etc from houses while residents are at work, asleep etc. I read a local article recently that said as many as 64 houses have been hit in the past few months.

There was a terrible murder where the intruders killed one young man (his wife and unborn child survived but are in critical condition) & then caught the house on fire less than a week ago and yesterday there was an article in the paper saying the home was stripped of it's copper.

Copper's $3.22 /lb today.
Then You have to find an unscrupulous scrap-buyer that'll offer You less than half that.
Aluminum on the other paw is over $1.50/lb, and no jail time.
Makes more sense to collect cans.

I'll gladly pay $5 per head for each of these lowlifes who get turned in for recycling.

It is funny when they off themselves. Like there was one incident where police found a corpse, a burning blowtorch, and downed power lines.
