Copper wiring stolen from house under construction

The Banks County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the theft of several hundred dollars worth of copper wire from a house under construction in the Lula area.
Banks County sheriff Charles Chapman said Monday his office received a call last Thursday to the construction location where approximately $1,400 worth of copper wiring had been stolen from electrical boxes. The sheriff said an unknown person or persons had entered the home sometime late in the previous afternoon. Copper pipe was also taken.
“Witnesses saw a red colored pickup truck at the house for approximately at hour,” Chapman said. “However, since the house was under construction and it was still daylight, they assumed someone was simply there working.”
Chapman said it will also cost an estimated $3,000 to go back and rewire the house.
The investigation remains open and Chapman asked anyone with information to contact the BCSO at 706-677-2248.
