Copper thieves strike again in Morgan Hill

MORGAN HILL — Police are seeking the suspect or suspects responsible for stealing copper electrical equipment from multiple businesses in Morgan Hill last weekend.

On Monday, police made the discovery as they were investigating a copper theft that occurred the night before in the 1500 block of Concord Circle, police said.

In all of the thefts, the suspects took an item called a copper backflow valve, which is attached to the outside of the building, police said.

Thieves steal copper because it can be sold to recycling centers for its metallic value, according to police.

The Morgan Hill Police Department wants to remind residents to report any suspicious activity.
