Edmund, SC (Paul Kirby) – The Lexington County Sheriff’s Department needs the community’s help to locate a man who took some big risk to steal some copper wiring from a utility company’s electric substation. According to deputies, the man cut through the fence of the facility on Landfill Lane in Edmund and actually took copper wiring from some equipment there. This is not only wrong, it’s very dangerous to even be inside the gate no matter whether you are dealing with the energized equipment or just stored items.
