Copper cylinders taken

Two copper cylinders have been stolen from a North Otago business. 

Sergeant Blair Wilkinson, of Oamaru, said the cylinders were stolen from a yard in Oamaru’s Chelmer St at the weekend.

Copper was generally stolen to be sold as scrap metal, and Sgt Wilkinson reminded businesses and residents to look at their security systems for metal items.
