Cheektowaga police searching for copper, steel thieves

Three burglars are being sought by Cheektowaga Police in connection with a recent overnight heist of nearly $40,000 worth of copper tubing and steel piping from a Standard Parkway business.

Police said that on March 11, burglars broke into Xylem Inc., moved the metal pieces from the back of the building and pushed them underneath a fence running along a field parallel to the Mainline Thruway.

One of the men wore a jacket with the word “Valet” on the back.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Cheektowaga Police at 686-3505 or text information anonymously to “TIP411.”
