An enterprising thief in Paulding County, Georgia, is believed to have used a climbing treestand to scale utility poles in order to steal copper telephone wire.
Investigators said this thief used a deer stand and stole enough copper wiring to stretch the length of five football fields.
“You’ve got to be bold to do it,” said Paulding County resident Jason Billes.
“It’s stupid, really,” Paulding County resident Beau Eubanks said. “Why would you go through that much trouble to make a few dollars?”
Investigators said no one saw the thief in the act.
