NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C.---Copper is the choice of thieves again, this time in Edgefield County. Copper tubing was stolen from two air conditioning units at Higgins Transport on the 1200 block of Edgefield Road, near Stephens Road.
Investigators believe it happened sometime this weekend. The crime wasn't discovered until Monday (September 24).
They don't think it's related to a string of copper thefts earlier this year.
The sheriff's office and North Augusta Public Safety are working together on the case.
