Suspected Copper Thief Dismantles A/C Units at Salvation Army

The Salvation Army currently estimates the cost of damages to be between $30,000-$40,000.
NORTH LITTLE ROCK, AR -- Police are investigating after a man was spotted on the roof of the Salvation Army trying to steal copper wire.

According to a North Little Rock Police Department (NLRPD) incident report, officers responded to the Salvation Army on West 18th Street just before 3:00 Wednesday morning after reports of a man on the roof.

A witness told police that while he was walking behind the building, he heard a loud noise, looked up and saw the man on the roof. The suspect noticed the witness and ran away.

When officers arrived, they found two piles of copper tubing on the roof, and further investigation revealed extensive damage to six air-conditioning units.

“We are still assessing the situation,” Salvation Captain Roger Glick said in a news release. “This service center is located in an area that desperately needs our services. We are disappointed in the actions of these vandals, but we are thankful for the support of our surrounding community.”
