Police today were investigating the theft of $4,500 worth of copper pipe reported Wednesday as having been removed from an Anniston business.

Anniston police Sgt. Chris Sparks said the business is on the 3100 block of Red Morris Parkway, just off Golden Springs Road. Employees discovered the copper missing from a warehouse the company owns on the 500 block of South Wilmer Avenue, Sparks said. According to a police report, the copper was stolen sometime between September 2012 and Wednesday.

An Internet search found Braxton Harris Company, a plumbing equipment manufacturer, and Rex Heat Treat, a metalworking company, located on Red Morris Parkway.

Representatives from both businesses said they were not aware of any thefts or a warehouse on South Wilmer Avenue.

Lt. Fred Forsythe said police found no evidence of a break-in at the warehouse.

Police are still investigating the incident, Sparks said.
