SALISBURY — Rowan County authorities say thieves have taken copper wire several times from Mid-Carolina Electric Inc.

The nighttime thefts have occurred since mid-January at the business, 980 Vanderbilt Drive off Roseman Road.

In surveillance images, the suspects appear to be two white men who climb a fence and throw rolls of copper wire over the fence.

A white woman is seen helping load the wire into a vehicle. The thieves wear hooded sweatshirts and masks over their faces.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact Detective Cody Trexler at 704-216-8713 or CrimeStoppers at 866-639-5245.
