Someone is stealing copper and lots of it in Shreveport.  The latest incident involves the theft of copper from Independence Stadium.

Thieves made off with some 200 to 300 pounds worth that came from large air conditioning units.
Police say copper theft is definitely on the rise in the area, since it is a precious, valueable commodity.
If you see any suspicious activity, such as people loitering around buildings, contact authorities. It just might be someone trying to make off with copper.
