It’s a crime that ends up costing you money. Bonneville Power Administration officials are offering a reward for information related to the theft of copper wire and fuel at a Redmond Work Station. BPA spokesman Doug Johnson says the theft of copper wire is a problem that gets passed down to everyone: "And the bad thing about this is the cost that we incur, and they do get into the hundred's of thousands of dollars each year, and ultimately are recovered from Northwest rate payers. We have to fold those costs into our bill, so anyone who pays a power bill in the northwest ultimately winds up with these charges on their bill in someway shape or form."   The incident happened during the last weekend of February.  Thieves stole copper wire and fuel from a vehicle at a work site just outside the substation. The damage and loss is estimated at close to $2000.
