The Charlestown Police Department has recently seen a spike in vacant property burglaries, specifically involving the theft of copper wiring and pipes. Several vacant homes during the past three weeks have been burglarized where forced entry is made and the only items missing are plumbing copper pipes and electrical copper wiring. These products are then sold to local metal recycling companies for quick cash, and normally to support personal drug addiction. Historically, these types of thefts have caused more damage loss to property during removal than the actual value of the copper removed. Police suggest that vacant property owners take any and all precautions to reduce the likelihood of becoming a victim of one of these crimes; including maintaining the property with regular visits, use of good exterior lighting, maintenance of solid and good working door locks and dead bolts, alarm systems if possible, and assistance of neighbors. The helpful eye of adjacent neighbors calling police when seeing suspicious activity in their area is invaluable. Additional crime prevention tips can be located on the Charlestown Police Department web site at www.ctownpd.com.
