Sinners Steal From the Saints


All the talk that the economy is improving is nice and all, but out in the heartland times are still hard. For instance, the St. Paul Saints, one of the foremost independent baseball teams have been the victims of an unfortunate theft; Sunday night thieves stole several hundred feet of copper wire out of the Saints’ home, Midway Stadium.

After getting through the back fence, the thieves came in and opened 8 electrical boxes, nabbing the copper wiring within. They also stole the copper wiring from the scoreboard and the pipes that run along the outfield wall. Even more horrendous, they disabled the connections for the hot tub!!!!

Brad Meyer from St. Paul Parks and Recreation said, “The act itself was really quite dangerous. and, in our eyes, quite shameful.” The cost to repair the stadium is expected to be nearly $10,000.

Sunday’s crime was the second copper theft in two years at Midway Stadium.
