(KMOV) – Police are looking for a suspect who left a dental office without power after stealing about $3,000 worth of copper wire in Arnold earlier this month.
Police say between 12 p.m. Oct. 4 and 8:40 a.m. Oct. 7, someone cut the copper wire at the base of the electric meter behind JL Dental in the 1900 block of Richardson Rd.
Authorities say the suspect also cut wire at an Ameren utility pole on Richardson Rd. about 70 yards away from the business. They then stole three electrical wires that cost about $2,000 in damage.
The investigation is ongoing.
