Thieves Plague Alaska Health Center Construction Site

January 30, 2012

Police in Fairbanks, Alaska, say the construction site of the Chief Andrew Isaac Heath Center continues to be a target for thieves.

Lt. Matt Soden tells the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner that there are no suspects in the theft this week of nearly $4,000 in tools from the site in south Fairbanks.

Thieves last week stole five spools of copper wire worth an estimated $3,500.

The new $68 million health center is scheduled to open in early 2013. It will serve Native Alaskans from a region that covers about 185,000-square miles of Interior Alaska.
