Trenton House Targeted for Copper Pipes Again
The following information was supplied by the Trenton Police Department. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.
Copper piping allegedly was stolen out of a Trenton house for the second time sometime between Aug. 26 and Aug. 30 in the 3100 block of Coucy Avenue.
A property manager told police an unknown person(s) broke out the rear basement window and gained entry to the home to take about 30 feet of copper pipe and exited out the back door, according to a Trenton police report.
The manager told police the house was recently equipped with an alarm, but the basement did not have any alarm sensors installed. He added the alarm was installed after the house was previously targeted.
The stolen pipe was recently replaced after someone stole the original piping on July 31, according to the same report.
The house was being renovated at the time of the theft.
