ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — Police in St. Paul are searching for some copper thieves.
Authorities say city workers first noticed the thefts from the Crosby Park Farm this week. The area had been blocked off because of flooding. The park is located on South Mississippi River Boulevard near the Mississippi River and also near Hidden Falls Drive.
Police say someone apparently took apart light poles in the park to get to the copper wires. The damage the robbers caused is estimated at about $7,000.
