Copper stolen from house, business in Austintown

AUSTINTOWN — The copper piping of a business and a vacant house in Austintown was taken sometime last week.

An employee of a remodeling company went to Huntmere Avenue house around 2 p.m. Aug. 15 and discovered the door open. The employee realized 250 feet of copper piping from the basement, kitchen and bathroom had been stolen, according to a police report.

A report on the incident was not filed until last Friday because the employee thought it was already done.

Sometime between Aug. 19 and Aug. 23 a building owned by Vinylume Products on Hendricks Road was broken into. An employee of the company reported to Austintown police that an unknown amount of copper piping was taken, along with 12-15 stainless sinks, a cast iron sink and a car battery.

A lock was cut to gain entry into the building, according to a police report.

Both incidents are being investigated.

If you show up at a metal recycling biz, day after day with copper pipe and siding, you should have to show proof that you are a contractor and/or receipts for the new stuff you are installing for the DIY person.
I have heard that a some of this stolen pipe is being sold to plumbers.
The cops need to hang out at one of these places and start asking questions when a backseat full of copper shows up.

@123goz - "I have heard that a some of this stolen pipe is being sold to plumbers."

Or it might be a plumber looking for some serious profits.

People need to start running some DC current through these pipes. You won't have to look far for the perps. Just a thought
