ORANGEVILLE, N.Y. (WIVB) - The Wyoming County Sheriff's Office is looking for the public's help to see who is responsible for major copper thefts.
The sheriff's office says in three separate incidents, nearly 4,000 pounds of copper worth around $20,000 has been taken from the Wind Farm Power Station on Centerline Road in the Town of Orangeville.
Authorities say the power station, which is under construction, had insulated copper and bare copper taken at the end of June. Copper lines were again cut over August 21 and August 22.
Deputies say many of the lines are energized and can cause death.
Scrap yards are asked to report anyone suspicious who attempted to sell large amounts of copper. A $1,000 reward for the arrest and conviction of the suspect or suspects involved is being offered.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Wyoming County Sheriff's Office at 585-786-8989.
