Copper thieves are targeting vacant rentals? According to a Seattle television station news report, thieves can make $40 to $60 for the copper wire removed from one home while it can cost as much as $6,000 to replace it. There are laws prohibiting recycling companies from knowingly buying stolen copper wire, but the victims don’t believe they are a sufficient deterrent. Legislation is being considered on both the state and federal levels to make the sale of stolen metals more difficult.
