Copper thieves steal street light wiring
December 12, 2013, 05:00 AM

Copper wiring valued at about $600 used for street lights was stolen overnight Wednesday on a portion of Ralston Avenue in Belmont, according to police.

Shortly after 7 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 11, someone reported to Belmont police that there was an open grate in the sidewalk with exposed wires on the south side of Ralston Avenue between Hiller Street and Highway 101.

Upon investigation, officers found that during the night four in-ground utility boxes in the sidewalk had been opened and approximately 600 feet of copper wire that provides electrical power to the street lights had been removed, according to police.

Anyone with information is asked to call Belmont police at (650) 595-7400 or the Belmont Police Crime Tip Line at (650) 598-3000.
