Sandusky engineer Aaron Klein said it will cost at least $700 in materials to replace 50 feet of copper wire stolen from Shoreline Park Tuesday morning.

It’s unknown if or when city officials will replace the wiring.

PREVIOUS STORY
When workers arrived at the park about at 11 a.m. to turn off the water fountain for the season, they found copper pipes and wiring tampered with, according to a Sandusky police report.

They found 50 feet of copper wire had been torn from the ground surrounding the water fountain. On further inspection, they found copper piping had been yanked loose from one of the park’s footbridges. On the bridge’s opposite side, the pipe had been struck with an object and was spraying water.

Workers suspect the wiring was stolen as scrap metal, the report said.

We were walking on Sunday morning and saw that. So, it happened before Sunday.

The places that buy scrap metal should copy drivers licenses and record dates and amounts of scrap metal. Wouldnt this come up as "suspicious" to a scrap metal place.... or do they just dont care?

Starting Jan. 1, 2014, the law also requires scrap metal dealers to keep records of all their transactions and send them to the Ohio director of public safety the following business day by noon. The records must include information such as a picture of the seller and the weight of the product they're selling.

The first offense for scrap metal dealers who fail to provide accurate records is a first-degree misdemeanor, which can come with up to six months of jail time, fines and a suspension of their business for up to 90 days. Subsequent offenses become felonies with stricter penalties.

I wonder if its one of those scrappers you see driving around town with unsafe loads or just some scumbag looking to score

There is not any O.R.C. that says it has to be strap down.The load can move around all it wants, as long as it dose not fall from the vehicle or hang over the side to far. The landfill requires loads to have a tarp over it. the scarp yards do not.

Moving around can make it fall..in my book that's kinda unsafe to have a chance of falling

Change out the breakers. Replace the CH120CAF with ZYA4403P type.

How does fifty foot of cooper wire get stolen from a park that is wide open to the public and no one knows anything about it? Officers do not have time to patrol the parks but have time to sleep in their car for two hours while the parks are being vandalized? Nice going.
