$2K of Copper Wire Stolen from Church of Scientology in Harlem, Police Say - 2015-02-19
A thief stole $2,000 worth of copper wire from the Church of Scientology on East 125th Street.
A construction crew working on the multi-million dollar facility noticed that the door of the site was open when they showed up to work on Feb. 7, according to the NYPD.
Once inside they found more than $1,000 worth of construction tools - including a $300 chop saw, a $400 grinder and a $200 drill set - gone. They also saw that copper wire was missing from the basement.
The crew had last been at the future site of the Church of Scientology the previous Saturday, police said.
