DORR, Mich. — Police are looking for a man suspected of stealing several rolls of copper wire in Dorr, the Michigan State Police Wayland Post says.  

The man stole the wire from a power company’s truck in August, while crews were working to restore power to thousands of residents following severe storms.

Utility companies from around Michigan and neighboring states responded to the outages. Crews found temporary locations to serve as their home base, which is where the theft happened.
