On March 23, 2018, the Pike County (MO) Sheriff's Office broadcast an alert for the theft of approximately 1,800 pounds of copper wire valued at $5,100. From the photo of the stolen material included in the alert, an area police department contacted the sheriff's office advising the arrest of a suspect, on charges unrelated to the copper theft, that had the wire in his possession. Not until the alert was broadcast did the police department learn of the theft of the copper wire.
