DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Campuses in the Dallas Independent School District (DISD) have been the repeated victims of copper thieves.
The district has suffered thousands of dollars in damage, as a result of the thefts.
“Included in those [thefts] are gonna be some HVAC units,” explained DISD police chief Craig Miller. “And two HVAC units were damaged and that’s $37,000 apiece, so it gets to be very expensive.”
In the month of November alone, copper thieves targeted nine schools.
