Copper Theft – Thieves steal $200,000 in copper wire
Thieves made off with $200,000 in copper wire and caused more than $1 million in damage to an oilfield site northwest of Drayton Valley, say RCMP.
Thefts in the oilfield are a serious problem which creates a financial burden to companies.
Two thieves were caught on a security camera breaking into the site which belongs to Obsidian Energy at 3:30 a.m. on July 17. The suspects used a two-tone dark colour, older model Dodge Dakota or Chevrolet pick-up truck.
“Thefts in the oilfield are a serious problem which creates a financial burden to companies who are already struggling in these financial times,” said Sgt. Erin Matthews.
Obsidian has shut the site down.
