Alaska State Troopers are searching for the person who stole three coils of copper tubing from a locked storage container last week.

According to Trooper Brian Mitchell, the theft was reported at noon Thursday when a contractor found the damaged container.

“The padlock was destroyed as well as the door was damaged,” Mitchell said.

The missing coils were described as 100 feet long and 1 inch in diameter, of a type commonly used in new construction. The missing copper is valued at approximately $2,000.

Kodiak metal recyclers have been notified about the missing material, but Mitchell said builders should also be aware. “Whoever the thief is might just try to sell it person-to-person,” he said.

Anyone with information about the theft or anyone who observes someone trying to sell copper matching the description of the missing tubing should call the Alaska State Troopers at 486-4121.
