Copper Sprinkler Heads Stolen

Thursday we told you about the growing number of people victims of copper theft. A few days ago, Dr. Cully Boren came outside to find water overflowing in his flower beds. He soon learned someone had stolen half of his copper sprinkler heads from his shrubs.

"Obviously copper has gotten expensive enough that people are now going through neighborhoods and taking people's copper or whatever in their air conditions and selling it," says Dr. Cully Boren.

Dr. Boren says he replaced the copper sprinkler heads with plastic.
