JAMESTOWN – A Jamestown landlord may be dishing out big bucks after he says his previous tenant stole cooper wiring from one of his apartment buildings.
Building supervisor Wayne Canada said the remodel is going to cost the building owner nearly $20,000.
“To fix this, we are going to have to gut the whole building and rewire it,” Canada said. “This is commonplace in the City of Jamestown.”
Canada said he suspects the thieves made off with less than $200 in wiring.
There is no word if the tenants will be prosecuted.
Canada said that the trash outside the building cements the fact that the tenants didn’t care.
