WARNING: Stolen Copper at Fields

by don_mecca

Thieves did $25,000 in damage to lighting at a soccer association's Pinckneyville fields in Georgia.

Makeshift goals had been erected to accommodate five extra teams from the Tucker Youth Soccer Association. On the sidelines, groups of giggly kids waited their turns on the field while soccer moms and dads mined the crowded green space in search of a place to park their lawn chairs.

The atypical arrangement was caused by thieves who had ripped out copper wiring from light poles at nearby Henderson Park field, causing about $6,000 in damage, displacing teams that practiced under the lights and making the TYSA players the latest victims of a nationwide epidemic.

TYSA fared well compared with its neighboring league, the Gwinnett Soccer Association, whose teams sought refuge at Granite two weeks earlier under similar circumstances. The vandals who hit the GSA's field in Lilburn stole about $100 worth of copper wiring from their field and caused about $8,500 in damage.

Those losses paled in comparison to the $25,000 in damage caused by thieves who hit Norcross Soccer Academy's Pinckneyville complex in Norcross, Georgia.
