Ok’Fest copper wire stolen

October 15, 2012

Someone apparently stole a quantity of copper wire used to help make electric connections at Sertoma Field for Walhalla’s annual Obtoberfest. The theft was discovered just last week, leaving only a few days for the city to order new wire so that the individual booths can access electrical connections during the three-day weekend that begins Friday. Blake Norton, a member of the Oktoberfest Committee, says he learned of the theft Friday. The Walhalla Police Department is investigating. And Ronald Wilbanks, interim police chief, says the copper wire theft may be connected to last month’s theft of a city grass cutter.
