As reported by Inside Towers, tower theft in Utah has been an increasing problem. Another robbery occurred in Tollgate Canyon, Utah, where someone stole more than $5,000 worth of copper wire from a cellphone tower, reports the Park Record.
It is still an open investigation as there are no current suspects. Detective Kacey Bates said there was a similar occurrence a few months ago, “At this time there is no connection that we know of between the two incidents,” Bates said. Because of the value of copper, and related trespassing offenses, the suspect could be facing elevated theft charges.
The tower is located near Forest Meadows Drive in Tollgate Canyon. Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile and Crown Castle were the victims, according to the report.
