Jan. 28--THOMASVILLE -- A 53-year-old Thomasville man is sought in connection with copper thefts from an AT&T substation.
The Thomas County Sheriff's Office is looking for Wayne John Schryver, 126 Love St.
Wiring containing copper was stolen from an AT&T substation at County Line Road and Dogwood Lane.
"They were upgrading, putting in new boxes and wiring," said investigator Pascal Autrey.
Several sizes of wiring containing copper were stolen and sold the same day at a Thomasville recycling facility. Less than $200 was received for the copper.
Earlier, a circuit box at the site was damaged. A small quantity of wire containing copper was taken.
Autrey said Schryver was identified through surveillance and witnesses.
AT&T's loss and damages totaled several thousand dollars, the investigator explained.
Anyone knowing Schryver's whereabouts is asked to call sheriff's office dispatch at 225-4151.
