Bootheel Lawmen Investigating More Copper Thefts

CARUTHERSVILLE, MO - Investigators with the Pemiscot County Sheriff's Dept. have been inundated in the past week with several reports of copper wiring stolen from farmers' center point irrigation pivots, primarily in the south end of the county.

Lt Ryan Holder of the Sheriff's Dept. says the reports reflect approximately $30,000 worth of copper, amounting to approximately 3,000 feet of wiring.  Holder says the Sheriff's Department is asking for the public's help in solving these crimes, and encourages anyone with information to contact the Sheriff's Dept. at 573-333-4101.

In addition, Pemiscot County authorities are also working with Mississippi County (AR) and Dyer County, Tennessee authorities in investigating the recent thefts of several stolen ATVs.  At least two of the 4-wheelers have been recovered, and one arrest made in Tennessee in connection with the theft.  Holder says more arrests are expected.
