Press Release - Copper Burglary

Below is a press release from Milton Police Lieutenant John Conger.

On April 28, 2013 at approximately 9:30pm our agency was dispatched to a burglary in the 1100 block of Arthur Drive. The investigation revealed that the target of the burglary was copper tubing in the vacant residence. 

It is unclear when the incident occurred, however, it is believed to be within the last two weeks. It appears that entry was forced through a garage window. 

This is the 6th copper-related burglary that has been reported in our community since January. 

While many investigative strategies are in play, we also rely heavily on members of our community to report any suspicious activity. If you observe suspicious activity, particularly in the vicinity of vacant properties, we urge you to contact the police department to report it.
