Large amount of copper wire stolen from Red Wing business

Several thousand feet of copper wire was stolen last week from D.L. Ricci, according to Red Wing police.

Officials at the business -- located at 5001 Moundview Driver -- reported Monday that 3,270 feet of wire was missing. It appears it was stolen Feb. 19.

Then, over the weekend, a metal storage container on the property holding more wire was damaged. Nothing was taken.

Two other storage units were broken into, however, and two saws worth $800 to $1,000 were stolen.

Damage to the storage units is estimated to be $3,000.
