Cops catch copper thief in old Seattle Times building
A copper thief skulking around the former headquarters of The Seattle Times was busted Saturday morning after workers at soup restaurant in the building complained their water had mysteriously shut off, John de Leon writes for The Seattle Times.
The culprit? A man with "crescent wrench, pipe cutter, pliers, wire snips, a utility knife, two flashlights and a set of keys" who was "gathering up a pile of copper pipes" underneath the restaurant, according to The Seattle Times. The man was arrested and booked for investigation of burglary.
