Holly Springs police officers investigate copper theft
Holly Springs police chief Robert Pearson said burglars broke into the Verizon Tower and Cell site in the 90 block of Clarice last week and took 180 feet of grounding copper wire and six solid copper grounding bars valued at $2,000.
A business was robbed in the 200 block of Memphis Street Saturday around 6:30 a.m., he said. Officers were told that a black male subject came into the store and demanded money from the register, Pearson said. The suspect fled on foot, running south on Memphis Street with over $500 in cash taken from the business.
Pearson described the suspect as a black male in his early twenties, wearing black jeans, a white T-shirt with silver letters, and a silk du-rag. Holly Springs police officers are still investigating this robbery.
Police arrested Roger Cowan, 17, of Holly Springs on felony possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, Pearson said.
