Posey County Investigating Copper Theft

Last updated on Tuesday, August 9, 2011

(MOUNT VERNON) - The Posey County sheriff’s department is investigating the theft of copper from the irrigation systems of 18 area farms.

Sheriff Greg Oeth says these types of cases are hard to investigate because the knowledge of how to commit these types of thefts is readily available on the internet.

He says as a result the suspects could be anywhere in the Midwest, not just Indiana.
