INDOT and Indiana State Police today announced a press conference will be held next week regarding the numerous incidents recently of metal scrapper thieves stealing wiring from highway light poles. Officials say the incidents have persisted along the I-80/94 and I-65 corridors, which results in darkened highways and in turn threatens the safety of drivers. Details on Indiana taxpayer money lost due to metal scrapping thieves, how they're doing it, and how the public can help to catch them is expected to be addressed during the press conference, which takes place Wednesday at 11am, at the INDOT Gary Subdistrict Conference Room.
