Copper thieves cut power to Pa. veterans group

Associated Press

BRISTOL, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say copper thieves darkened Veterans Day for a veterans' organization in Pennsylvania.

Officials at the Delaware Valley Vietnam Veterans organization in Bristol tell WPVI-TV (http://bit.ly/HS0HGl ) that someone stole copper wiring from a transformer that supplies electricity to their headquarters in Bristol. PECO Energy Co. workers were able to fix the problem by Monday afternoon.

The veterans' group says a Veterans Day ceremony planned for Monday night will now be able to go on as scheduled.
