Incident Type: Theft

Incident Date: 09/18/2012 - 9:58 AM

Address: 1295 N. Sherman Ave. (Klinke Cleaners)

Details: A maintenance worker at Klinke Cleaners, 1295 N. Sherman Ave., contacted the MPD last week after discovering several feet of copper piping had been cut from two condenser units. The copper was valued at $2,500, while damage to the units was placed at up to $12,000.

The MPD also took a report from a maintenance worker at Trinity Lutheran Church, 1904 Winnebago St., on September 12th regarding another copper theft. In that case someone stole a copper downspout from the church. The complainant indicated they would likely replace it with one made from much less expensive metal.
