FARGO – Thieves broke into a Fargo business and stole $50,000 worth of copper wire over the weekend, police said.

The theft at Fargo Electric Construction is believed to have happened between Friday and Monday morning, when it was reported about 7 a.m., Lt. Joel Vettel said.

After forcing their way into the building, the culprits moved the company’s trucks out of the way to get at the wire, then loaded it using the company’s skid-steer loaders, he said.
