WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Copper thieves tore out electrical systems at a Wichita industrial park, causing about $750,000 in damage.

The theft was reported Friday at Kamen Industrial Park in Wichita. Police said the vandals stole about 2,000 feet of copper wiring.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/Ue4pcP ) that police received the call Friday afternoon after someone with the company found a large pile of heavy-strand copper wire on the ground.

The thieves hit the roof of the building tearing out electrical systems to get to the copper wiring. Sgt. Bart Brunscheen, a spokesman for the Wichita Police Department, says detectives are looking at a potential suspect.
