Copper Thief Uses Tree Stand to Nab Phone Lines

Now we've heard everything.

According to WSB-TV in Atlanta, a copper thief used a tree stand to scale a telephone pole in Paulding County, Ga., stealing enough copper wiring to stretch across five football fields and leaving some residents in the area without phone service.

Unfortunately, the Paulding County Sheriff's Office has no suspects; the thief was never seen, and the crime was only noticed when residents noticed their phone service was out.


"It's stupid, really," Paulding County resident Beau Eubanks told reporters. "Why would you go through that much trouble to make a few dollars?"


Anyone with any information regarding the theft should call the Paulding County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigations Division at (770) 443-3015.
