Unlikely Target For Thieves

There is no cash on hand. No tablets or cell phones, not even a Playstation. The yard at Flinn Paving Company might be the last place you would expect a burglary and that's probably what the two thieves that were caught on video believed.

Through a driving snowstorm you can still make out the two suspects hauling off thousands of dollars worth of wire and cable that they cut from a mobile paving plant.

The company's yard is just off 65th & Grover in Omaha and has now been hit by copper thieves on two occasions.

The employees didn't want to do an interview but did walk us around the yard to show us how they got in and some of the damage that was left behind.

They estimate it will cost them thousands of dollars to have the mobile paver rewired and it will cost them thousands more on lost income as it sits idle.
