Reward for Information in Copper Wire Thefts Approved

The City Council approved the Cooper Wire Theft Reward motion for Council District 4 on January 4, 2013. The motion was originally introduced by Councilmember Tom LaBonge in early December. An aggregate sum of $25,000 was allotted for this reward.

Councilmember Tom LaBonge offered the following friendly amendment to the motion which Councilmember Englander approved:

  1. Reward not to exceed $2,000.00 per incident that leads to a conviction in a cooper wire theft in Council District #4 only.
  2. The reward will be paid out of the Street Lighting Maintenance Assessment Fund as opposed to the General Fund.

Here is a link to the adopted motion for your consideration: CF# 12-0010-S51

Anyone with information in Wilshire Division, should call Detective Veda Young at (213) 922-8205.

On a related note, at the January 9th GWNC meeting the Councilmember’s office noted that all Hancock Park lights have been repaired.
