Freeways going dark as thieves steal wiring; one man is electrocuted

Filed under: Randomness — Tranimal @ 3:49 pm

LA Times:

A California Highway Patrol officer urged the public today to report suspicious activity that could point to thieves removing copper wiring from lighting along Southland freeways.

Wiring theft has become a plague hitting freeways on the average of once a week, CHP Officer Jennifer Hink said. “They’re blacking out our freeways.”

WOW. Supposedly recyclers pay $3 a pound for copper wires. Damn. Hustling freeway wiring is tough.
