Crime Line: Thieves Take Sprinkler Valves from Lakes at Dare

Thieves took brass sprinkler valves similar to this from homes on Waterfowl Drive in York County.

The York-Poquoson Sheriffs Office is looking for information about thefts in the Lakes at Dare neighborhood.

Police say sometime between Tuesday and Wednesday someone stole brass valves off the lawn sprinkler systems at several residences in the 800 block of Waterfowl Drive in York County. The valve heads may have been stolen to turn in for scrap, although investigators are not sure of the intention.

Scrap brass doesn’t command much cash; current listings for less than a truckload are far less than a dollar per pound. Sprinkler valves, however, can run around $25.

Anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity should call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
