At 9:36 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 18, a residential burglary was reported in the 1200 block of Chapman Road in Ringgold, in which $25,000 worth of copper pipes and wiring was stolen.
The person who reported the burglary told police he is merely a property manager for the home, which is currently owned by a bank.
He said copper pipes and wiring was missing from the basement area, and could not offer a time frame for the theft, as the house is currently unoccupied.
