FAIRFIELD, Maine — Police are investigating the theft of copper that was stolen from Central Maine Power vehicles over the weekend.

Fairfield police Chief Tom Gould said Tuesday those responsible cut a hole in the chain-link fence of the CMP building on Center Street to gain access to a parking lot.

Copper-grounding cables and copper wiring which Gould believes is worth roughly $3,000 was stolen from four company vehicles in the lot. He said the trucks were not damaged.

Police were notified Monday morning when employees returned to work, Gould said. Police have not identified any suspects.

Anyone with knowledge of the incident is asked to contact Fairfield police at 453-9321.
