Work To Replace Stolen Wire Underway

DELANO TOWNSHIP — PPL workers were out in Schuylkill County Friday, replacing copper wire swiped from a power line.

Authorities said PPL crews discovered about 2,500 to 3,000 feet  of copper wire — $20,000 worth — stolen from a main power line network along Interstate 81 near Mahanoy City.

Investigators think it was taken sometime between Tuesday and Thursday.
