ANACONDA, Mont. (AP) — Law enforcement officers in Butte and Anaconda are investigated the reported theft of several hundred pounds of copper wire from an asphalt plant near Fairmont Hot Springs for the second time in three months.

A spokesman with Gilman Construction tells the Montana Standard reports the thieves are believed to have taken the wire last week. The spokesman said it could cost up to $20,000 to replace the wire.

The company reported copper wire stolen from the same plant in March. That also cost between $15,000 and $20,000 to replace.

Anaconda Police Chief Tim Barkell says investigators are reviewing surveillance footage to identify suspects.
