Thousands of dollars worth of copper stolen from vacant house

CAMBRIA – Three hundred feet of copper, valued at $6,000, was stripped from a vacant house in the 5800 block of Shawnee Road over the past three months, according to the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office.

A property manager for the bank-owned house told deputies that sometime since Oct. 1 someone had broken in and stripped all the copper from the basement.

There was no sign of forced entry, deputies said.
