Sound Transit asking for tips about theft of copper wire

Sound Transit police are hoping for tips to identify thieves who stole four miles of copper cable from inside its elevated Link trackway in Tukwila.

The copper was inside a hollow part of the elevated route’s guideway spans. To break into the interior and remove the copper would require specialized knowledge, said spokesman Bruce Gray.

The wire’s purpose is to capture stray electric current, at low levels, which might otherwise cause reinforcing steel to corrode over many decades. The crime was discovered last week during a maintenance inspection.

The theft does not affect train operations or safety, and new wire has been ordered, Gray said.

People with information are asked to call 206-296-3311.
