Farmers offer $2,500 reward for tips in thefts
ROCK FALLS – Steve Moore is frustrated.
Over the last several years, thieves have stripped hundreds of feet of copper wiring off his irrigation system in his Star Road field at least five times. In the most recent theft, discovered Jan. 23, the scavengers took 750 feet of copper wiring and damaged his sprinklers.
Moore’s story isn’t unique. Over the last year and a half, deputies have investigated at least a half dozen similar thefts in the southern part of Whiteside County, Sheriff Kelly Wilhelmi said.
