RCMP are trying to track down whoever stole copper wire from a hydro substation earlier this week.
The theft in the RM of Macdonald occurred on September 4 and resulted in $20,000 worth of copper being stolen. But the real cost comes at the expense of the fence that was damaged to get to the copper — about $100,000.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Headingley RCMP at (204) 831-5929 or Manitoba Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
