SOUTH GLENGARRY – Thieves looking to make a quick buck selling copper wire have hit again – this time in South Glengarry.

SD&G O.P.P. say somebody broke into a commercial building on Richmond Road sometime overnight Sunday and stole a quantity of copper wire.

This is at least the fifth theft of copper wire in SD&G since December.

Cops still have an unsolved case with surveillance videos after thieves made off with 12 spools of copper wire from a business in the Chesterville area.

The other thefts were in South Dundas on County Road 2 in February and at a solar farm on County Road 14 in South Stormont in January.

A compound on Emma Street in Chesterville was broken into in December where 900 feet of copper wire was stolen.
