They began unspooling and cutting wire and loading it into their van. The males also broke into a trailer and stole a Honda generator and cables and also stole an unknown quantity of scrap wire. The total value of the theft is in excess of $25,000

Both males were wearing face coverings and arrived in a white panel van with no markings.
