One man in the east is sounding the alarm over repeated copper thefts.
John Hardee of Craven County says thousands of dollars worth of copper and equipment were stolen from his property recently.
Since 2006, nine to ten people have been arrested for stealing from Hardee's property. He says that it's not just him. There have been other copper and equipment thefts within a three mile radius of his home, including old Cherry Point Road, Thurman Road, and Old Airport Road. Hardee has been getting the word out to all of his neighbors.
These robberies have been occurring in broad daylight. If you have information about these incidents you are asked to call Craven County Crimestoppers.
