ABILENE, Texas -

An Abilene business has fallen victim to what appears to be copper theft amounting to thousands of dollars in damage.

According to an incident report, an unknown person(s) stole 30-foot power cords from five portable restroom trailers located at Can-Doo Budjet Rentals on Goliad Drive. It seems the cords were targeted for the copper they contain.

The business estimates it will cost $10,000 to make up for the loss.
