Kamloops RCMP are looking for the owner of a large coil of heavy-gauge wire found Saturday afternoon in a backyard in the 500 block of Carmel Court.
Given its size and dimension, police believe the wire was stolen from a construction site work truck. Thieves commonly take wire for the value of the copper inside.
The wire was likely stashed in the yard so it could be picked up later, Staff Sgt. Grant Learned said.
