DULUTH, MINNESOTA – Copper thieves have their eyes on a new target across the Northland, and it’s happening in the privacy of some people’s back yards. This comes as copper is at an all-time high in terms of what it’s worth.

RVer Ken Miller, 76, of Duluth, never thought he’d become a victim of crime.

Just recently, Miller’s powerline to his camping trailer was cut short by thieves who had one thing on their minds – the copper inside.

20 ft. of heavy-duty electrical cord was cut off and stolen while the camper was sitting in Miller’s backyard, leaving only 10 ft. of the power line behind.

Duluth police Sgt. Chad Nagorski said camper cords are attractive to copper thieves because “…they are larger and contain more copper and thus getting more money when they go to sell them.”
