Police claim a suspect showed up around 1:00am to try and get into a fenced in compound from all sides, finally damaging it enough to be able to get through. A quantity of wire was then stolen from the location, as police claim the suspect brought a wagon to the scene of the crime.

The whole thing was caught on camera, and while police say the images are distorted due to darkness, they are able to provide a suspect description.
