NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - New Orleans police are searching for two people who stripped a New Orleans East building of copper wiring.

Investigators say the duo stole the copper cable wire around noon last Thursday from the rear of a building at 6600 Plaza Drive.

New Orleans Police say after they stole the copper, they placed the wire in the back seat of a navy blue Volvo sedan and took off.

Detectives say the men cased the business beforehand on May 29, when they stole a fold-up latter.
