Copper, lumber stolen from unfinished homes in Cumming


March 10, 2014
CUMMING, Ga. — About 10 homes under construction had $10,000 in copper line sets and $1,500 in lumber stolen from them, according to Forsyth County Sheriff's reports.

The foreman for JEH homes told deputies the thefts in the homes in Waterbrooke subdivision, in South Forsyth County, happened sometime between Feb. 10 and Feb. 27.

He said he has no idea who might be responsible but guessed it could have been someone from another framing company working in the area.

He showed deputies to five homes off Brierstone Drive where $2,000 in copper line sets were stolen.

Deputies said the line sets, which are copper pipes that go from the air conditioning unit on the outside of the home to the furnace in the attic, consist of about 100 feet of copper along with fittings.

Each set had been removed by cutting the straps that secure it to the wall stud. Deputies said it appeared the line set was cut at the furnace even though they are supposed to be soldered to the furnace.

The foreman also showed deputies to other homes off Hazel Wood Drive and Misty Brooke Court where about $500 in lumber were stolen from each.

    Considering these bad economic times, and the large number of unemployed people with families to feed and lost benefits from the Georgia Dept. of Labor - wouldn't it occur to these General Contractors to hire, or set up a Security Post on the premises at these Multi-unit Subdivisions? Maybe having an hourly paid Night Watchman on site would cut down on their losses, work delays, and production cost over-rides.
