MPD looks into copper thefts at Shaw



Police work to narrow down one or multiple suspects that could pull off a massive copper take. Pabian estimated the potential building damage to be “a fortune.”

MPD suspects the rampant theft is a professional job.

“This is not an operation that any local can do because of the fact that it has to be someone who knows a lot about electricity because you can actually lose your life stealing that copper wire if you don’t know what you are doing,” Hill said. “I’d go as far as saying that it may be a former employee.”

In the meantime, MPD officers have stepped up Shaw area patrols and added a weekly walk-through.

The vacant Shaw building is tabbed to roar back as the Milledgeville-Baldwin County Communiversity. 

Pending city signatures, Solar Zones, LLC. plans to lease-purchase the 93,000 square foot building by way of the Milledgeville-Baldwin County Development Authority for $450,000.

The local Communiversity stated mission is foster entrepreneurship, enhance workforce training and community wide economic development.

Committed parties include Solar Zones, the Milledgeville Players, the Central State Hospital Local Redevelopment Authority, Central Georgia Technical College, the Baldwin Investment group and Perpetual Motion, LLC.
