Left In The Dark, St Paul Street Lights Being Targeted By Thieves
Some residences in Saint Paul are being left in the dark, literally, when the sun goes down each day. The reason why residents are being kept in the dark is that thieves are now targeting street lights in Minnesota's capital city for wire they can sell for quick cash.
In a post from the Saint Paul Police Department on Tuesday, police are asking residents to report suspicious behavior or people 'working' on street lights. One of the key points is that residents should be on the lookout for Saint Paul Public Works vehicles that would accompany the street light 'workers'. If there isn't a public works vehicle at the worksite, chances are those 'workers' are really ripping off the wiring in order to make a quick buck.
