Blotter: Lewisville police seek help on copper thefts

Comments () A Text Size

Lewisville police are seeking the public’s help to solve two recent copper thefts.

Last Wednesday, officers were dispatched to the 800 block of Union Station after a construction company reported more than $100,000 worth of copper was missing from its site.

The next day, police were dispatched to the 2600 block of South Interstate 35E where an estimated 2,400 feet of copper from two light poles near I-35E and the Sam Rayburn Tollway were reported stolen.

Officials said they are unsure if the two thefts are related.

Anyone with information about the cases is urged to contact the Lewisville Police Department’s crime tip line at 972-219-TIPS (8477) or Denton County Crime Stoppers at 800-388-TIPS (8477).
