Copper Thefts

by Christa Lollis

8 different churches in Angelina County have been having air conditioning problems but not typical ones. Each of the churches have had the copper stolen out of their outdoor AC. Units. The sheriff's office has arrested one man in connection with the thefts and another suspect will likely be charged and arrested. Authorities say copper theft has been common lately because of it's high value.   Right now copper is going for over two dollars a pound making stealing it that much more appealing to thieves.
