Thieves used bolt cutters to cut through a fence surrounding a Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. parking lot and stole $400 worth of copper wire between 3:30 p.m. Monday and 6 a.m. Tuesday, county police said.
A company manager at the lot in the 100 block of Dover Road reported the theft Tuesday. Police said the thieves stole seven rolls of copper wire from three trucks.
BGE crews drove off in the trucks before they could be checked for evidence, police said. The manager told police the theft was the second of its kind within a week.
