Miles of copper wire stolen from freeway light fixtures

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) _ Honolulu police say 2.7 miles of copper wire was stolen this past week from light fixtures along the H-1 Freeway.

The latest heist happened early Friday when thieves took more than a mile of copper wire in Makakilo worth $24,000. It caused a small explosion and a shower of sparks.

On Tuesday, more than a mile and a half of copper wire was taken from a stretch of H-1 Freeway in Kunia.

So far this year, thieves have taken more than $153,600 worth of copper wire from Oahu freeways.
