Scrap metal thieves strike same church for the 3rd time


MADISON (WKOW) --  It's the third time in three years Trinity Lutheran Church has been hit by scrap metal thieves.

Back on August 12, a maintenance worker at the church, located on Winnebago Street, reported that someone had cut away a ten foot section of copper gutter tubing and two sections of copper air conditioning pipe, each approximately 20 feet long.

Estimated damage is around $8,000.  Copper downspouts were also taken from the church in April 2011 and May 2012.
