Copper thieves cut power to state veterans group
BRISTOL | Authorities say copper thieves darkened Veterans Day for a veterans’ organization in Pennsylvania.
Officials at the Delaware Valley Vietnam Veterans organization in Bristol tell WPVI-TV that someone stole copper wiring from a transformer that supplies electricity to their headquarters in Bristol. PECO Energy Co. workers were able to fix the problem by Monday afternoon.
The veterans’ group says a Veterans Day ceremony planned for Monday night would be able to go on as scheduled.
