NEW LONDON, Wis (WSAU) Last August Trinity Lutheran Church in New London was destroyed by a tornado. Now a 25-year-old man is under arrest for stealing copper wire from the construction site as the church rebuilds.
The church was under construction when someone noticed the wire was missing last month. A trail-camera was installed at the construction site, and a week later about 300-feet of wire and the trail-cam were taken.
Andrew Young was arrested when the trail cam was found at his house. He's charged with burglary, possession of burglars tools, and theft. His next court date is November 19th.
