Lakewood police detectives are looking for the thieves who stole more than $20,000 worth of wire and metal from a handful of businesses last weekend.

The thieves ripped wire out of four parking light poles at one business, grabbed a stash of scrap aluminum from a locked fenced area of another business and stole several spools of copper wire from the locked building of a third business.

Surveillance cameras captured a suspect trying to remove wire from a light pole at a fourth business. Eventually, the would-be thief gave up and left.

He was seen in a white or light-colored, older, four-door sedan.
