The Chesterfield Police are investigating a burglary at Parkway Central High School that resulted in the theft of four rolls of copper. The incident occurred overnight on Feb. 1-2, according to police records. Chesterfield Police Officer Michael Ryffel said the doors to a maintenance building behind the high school had been left open. Ryffel did not have any details on the estimated value of the copper taken, but said the metal is often a target for thieves because it has a high resale value. Parkway Central officials did not immediately return a call Friday afternoon for further information about the incident. Read more Chesterfield crime stories:
