WEST JORDAN POLICE ARE CONTINUING THEIR SEARCH TUESDAY, FOR COPPER THIEVES WHO NOT ONLY MADE OFF WITH TWO HUNDRED FEET OF WIRE... BUT ALSO FORCED POWER TO BE TURNED OFF -- AT NEARLY A THOUSAND HOMES -- WHILE REPAIRS WERE MADE.

JEFF HYMAS, WITH ROCKY MOUNTAIN POWER, SAYS THE THEFT OCCURRED AT A SUBSTATION, NEAR 74TH SOUTH, 11TH WEST.

POLICE SAY THE THIEVES ACCESSED THE SUBSTATION, FROM THE NEARBY JORDAN RIVER PARKWAY...AND CUT A FENCE TO GET IN.

SINCE THERE'S NO SURVEILLANCE VIDEO OF THE CRIME, AUTHORITIES HOPE SOMEONE WITNESSED IT... AND WILL CALL IN.
