Copper Theft Bill Moves Through State Senate

Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Copper thieves may have a more difficult time profiting from stolen material under a bill approved Monday by the state Senate.

Sen. Cliff Branan's measure would require junk dealers to keep detailed descriptions of copper purchased for recycling and obtain photo identification of the seller.

Branan, R-Oklahoma City, said the climb in copper prices in recent years has led to many thefts, with Oklahomans losing electrical power because of copper thefts at electrical substations.

The bill now goes to the House for consideration.
