Police are looking for the thieves who stole more than 500 yards of copper wire from a catholic church in Antioch.

Investigators say someone cut the electrical conduit from Saint Ignatius Church early Saturday morning, and removed the copper wire, knocking out power to the church.

The thieves also cut the phone lines in several places. This is just the latest in a string of robberies at the parish. Earlier this month thieves also stole all of its security cameras -- and stripped the copper wire from air conditioning units making them useless.
