Plea After 'Stolen' Copper Pipes Recovered In Kidderminster
Police are trying to trace the owners of copper pipes recovered after they were believed to have been stolen in Kidderminster.
Two white youths, thought to be in their mid-teens, were spotted by officers carrying lengths of copper piping down Worcester Road at around 12 noon on Monday, 10 July. They were taken to a local scrapyard but when the police drew up in a vehicle the youths ran from the scene.
PC Julian Ward said: "The piping was seized and appeared brand new and dry even though the weather was wet. We believe it had been stolen shortly beforehand in that area, possibly from a van or a building site. We would like to hear from anyone who had copper pipes stolen there around then and also if anyone knows who these youths are or saw them."
Both youths were about 5ft 7inches in height, and one had mousey coloured, short hair and was wearing dark clothing. The other was wearing a grey woolly hat and red sweatshirt.
PC Ward can be contacted at Kidderminster Police Station on the non-emergency number 101 and witnesses or anyone with information can also pass on details anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
