NRP Investigate Copper Theft in Welland

Two men have been arrested, for allegedly stealing copper wire in the east end of Welland.

NRP officers were called out to a Hydro One field early yesterday morning.

They arrested two 36-year-old men from Port Colborne. They have both been charged with theft over $5,000 and possession of break-in instruments.

One of the men has also been charged with mischief over $5,000.

Police say he damaged hydro lines early Tuesday morning, which caused power outages in the Rose City.
