Electric Car charging cables being stolen from charging stations

LOS ANGELES – Copper thieves have an easy new target… electric vehicle charging stations that are filled with copper wiring.

Brazen thieves were caught on camera cutting the wires from a charging station in Van Nuys.

“Out of the 40 stations that we have, 38 of them were stolen and the other two were damaged,” said CEO of the nonprofit One Generation Jenna Hauss.

She says the estimated cost in damages is over $18,000.
