Authorities say nearly two miles of copper wiring have been stolen off a pivot irrigation system near Blue Springs in southeast Nebraska.
Gage County sheriff's officers have been investigating the theft, which likely occurred between Dec. 17 and Christmas Day, just north of the Blue Springs Cemetery.
The loss is estimated at around $10,000. No arrests have been reported.
