Wood County copper theft causes power outage

Several East Texas homes lost power Thursday because of a copper theft. Wood County Sheriff's deputies say copper wire was stripped from a power line this morning on County Road 3522, north of Hawkins. In all, about 300 feet of copper wire was stolen. Power has since been restored to the homes that were affected, but right now, no arrests have been made.
