New CrimeStoppers program aims to stamp out the ‘Copperheads’

Copperstoppers was created by a coalition of business and government organizations composed to fight the theft of and illegal sales, purchases and transportation out of town of copper and other scrap metals.


Copper stripped from wiring, appliances, plumbing or electrical boxes may bring hundreds of dollars when sold, but often results in thousands of dollars in damages to homes, apartments, churches and other facilities.


Now it must stop. Special awards up to $1,000 over and above normal Crimstoppers awards are available for information leading to arrests.


Help stop the criminals — we are calling them copperheads — doing economic harm to our community.
