AC units, copper wiring targeted
Special to The Community News
Parker County Sheriff’s Criminal Investigations Division is investigating multiple theft reports occurring over the last month.
Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler said 24 incidents were reported involving thefts of air conditioning units and copper wire in the last 30 days.
“Copper prices have increased, therefore, increasing copper theft reports,” Fowler said.
Property owners and real estate agents reported the thefts have occurred mostly in abandoned or vacant residences, construction sites and rental/sale properties scattered throughout Parker County. Sheriff’s investigators said more than 20 cases of AC units and copper wiring thefts have been reported on the last several weeks.

Aledo punts it away after 1 first down. Poteet takes over at their own 20.
The defense stops Poteet on their first possesion. Cunningham muffs the punt but he does recover. Aledo takes over at their own 22 yard line.
Poteet forces another punt as Aledo's offense has yet to get going. The Pirates take over at their own 28.
Poteet missed a 37 yard field goal to give the ball to Aledo on their own 20 yard line.
As the 1st quarter turns to the 2nd, Aledo is forced to punt again. The ball does land inside the 5, so if Aledo holds here they will have great field position.
