STAMFORD, Conn. -- Thieves hit a payday when they made off with slightly more than $4,000 of copper wire at a High Ridge Road construction site, Stamford police said.
A shrink-wrapped pallet of copper wiring was delivered late last month the new CVS, which is under construction at 969 High Ridge Road, police said. The pallet was last seen on July 29 when the construction manager went on vacation, police said.
The manager returned from vacation Tuesday and noticed the pallet was missing, said Sgt. Kelly Connelly.
A 2,500-foot spool of copper wire worth $4,000 and a smaller 120-foot spool of copper wire worth $150 was on the pallet, Connelly said.
Stamford police are checking with recyclers in the area to see whether anyone attempted to or did sell the copper wire, Connelly said.
The case remains under investigation.
