Copper thieves steal from St. Paul holiday lights display

ST. PAUL (WCCO) — Electric cords have been cut and stolen from the lighted displays in St. Paul’s Phalen Park this week.

According to a representative of IBEW Holiday Lights, the thieves cut both heavy and light duty electric cords, costing the event more than $2,500 to replace.

“One of the tragedies of the thefts is that the cost of replacing cords means there is less for us to donate to our worthy non-profits,” said Lisa Engh, event co-chair. “All of our net proceeds go straight to charities that benefit our community so this hurts on many levels.”
