SALINA, Kan. (AP) -- Police in Salina are looking for whoever stole or damaged more than $37,000 worth of wire from an auction lot.

Deputy Police Chief Carson Mansfield says it happened sometime between Sunday night and late Monday afternoon.

Thieves cut a metal chain to gain access to the lot at Wilson Auction. Once inside, they cut a 500-foot spool of 4-inch pressurized wire, leaving it damaged beyond repair. The wire was worth $22,500.

Several other spools of wire and coaxial cable were stolen from the property, including 250 feet of 2.5-inch wire worth $7,500.
