Even though you may not be directly affected by theft, we are all affected indirectly by limited supplies and higher prices. This week's Victoria Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week involves wire theft, which continues to be a problem.

Despite this crime being a felony, businesses in our area continue to be victimized by people stealing wire and presumably selling it for scrap.This crime raises prices and rates for everyone.

If you have any information about someone stealing wire, please contact Victoria Crime Stoppers at 361-572-4200.  All tips are anonymous and if you give information that leads to arrest or indictment, you could earn a cash reward.

Crime Stoppers Pays.
