Thieves Target Set of Florida Crime Show

Real detectives are now investigating thefts from the set of a TV crime show filmed in South Florida.

Twice in the past month, authorities say thieves have stolen more than $20,000 worth of copper wiring from A&E TV show “The Glades.”

Broward County deputies say two men in a white Ford-F-150 drove up to the set’s loading dock last month and stole about $20,000 worth of copper cables that run from two generators to power air conditioners on the production sets.

The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports a second theft occurred Monday when a different truck drove to the same spot and took about 300 feet of copper cable.

Authorities released surveillance video detailing the crimes and are urging anyone with information to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477.
