Humboldt RCMP are currently investigating a theft of copper wire from a power pole at a rural location in the RM of Leroy.
This type of theft poses a significant safety concern. Since the meter is no longer grounded there is concern that the area around the power pole can become energized and electrocution is possible. There is also a risk of fire from this type of theft.
If you have information about this or any other crime, please contact Humboldt RCMP at 306-682-2535 or you may contact Saskatchewan Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or submit a tip online at www.saskcrimestoppers.com.
