The Police alert us to the theft of $60,000 worth of copper from a building site in Barton.
Now the OLEX price of copper appears to be smidge over $9,000 a tonne at the moment, so we’re talking something in the order of seven tonnes of copper made off with.
From the media release our Holmes-like police observe:
Police believe that because of the weight and volume of the material stolen, a vehicle had been used in the theft.
