Metal thieves cost local business big bucks

By Marc LaVoie. CREATED Feb 12, 2014

A south Wichita business will have to close down for several days to repair damage caused by copper thieves.

Wichita Police say someone broke into the Cornejo and Sons plant near K-15 and I-135 and stole wire and acetylene bottles. Damage is estimated at $100,000.

Police say this is the second time recently that someone has broken into property owned by the Cornejo company.
