|CCSO investigating three metal thefts|
The Christian County Sheriff’s Office is investigating three significant thefts this week.
The first happened at a construction site on Princeton Road, where Pembroke resident Joe Rives told deputies someone removed $1,200 worth of copper that would take $1,800 worth of labor to replace as it was.
Rives used a gun to stop copper thieves in their tracks last summer after being victimized on multiple occasions.
The second report came from Kem Stacey of International Systems, which has a construction site on Gate 7 road near Oak Grove. Stacey told police someone broke open the front door and stole a saw, two drills, several thousand feet of wiring, a laptop and a impact wrench.
The total value of the items came to nearly $3,000. There are no suspects listed on either report.
The most recent incident was reported Thursday at 2365 Empire Road near Crofton, where James Bullock said someone stole a generator, boat battery, rifle totaling $1,690 in value.
A suspect is listed on that report, with all three investigations ongoing.
