(WICHITA, Kan.)—A Wichita non-profit group has been the target of recent vandalism acts.
Senior Services said someone stole copper from an air conditioning unit sometime last week. A maintenance man noticed the gate surrounding the unit had been pried open. He found electrical wires had been cut and exposed. Nearby Westar electrical poles were also damaged. The organization said the stolen copper is worth about $60 dollars, but it will cost up to $80,000 to replace the units.
In a second incident, the non-profit said someone took down signs directing people to Saturday's St. Patrick's Day Parade breakfast. A man driving a brown van handed the signs to a maintenance worker, then drove away. The signs were cut in half.
Anyone with information on the copper theft is asked to call police.
