Thieves take close to $250,000 worth of copper from Calhoun, TN plant

MCMINN COUNTY, Tenn. — Hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of copper has disappeared from a McMinn County business and investigators are trying to find who is responsible. The copper thieves hit the Resolute Forest Products plant in Calhoun multiple times over the last month.

"They were able to cut quite a bit up and transport it out of there fairly quickly," says McMinn County Sheriff Joe Guy.

The thieves were caught in the act stealing hundreds and hundreds of feet of heavy, industrial copper wiring from the plant in Calhoun.
