HANOVER TWP. - A large amount of copper wire was stolen over the weekend from two utility power substations, township police said.

Police said about 200 to 300 feet of copper wire was stolen from the UGI substation on New Commerce Boulevard in Hanover Industrial Estates. A fence was cut to access the substation. Pieces of cut copper wire were located outside the fence line.

An all-terrain trail was discovered outside the fence, police said.

About one-mile away near state Route 309, police said about 100 feet of copper wire was stolen from the PPL Electric Utilities substation. Several locks on gates were cut to access the private property.

Police believe the thefts at the two locations occurred Friday night through Monday morning.
