SUGAR LAND, Texas (CBS Houston) — Sugar Land police are searching for thieves who stole nearly $25,000 worth of copper from a minor league baseball stadium.

Police were called to Constellation Field on Dec. 30 after an employee noticed that the plywood door to the storage room was cracked in half.

The person told police that 46 reels of copper wiring worth $24,618 was stolen from the storage room, according to a police report obtained by CBS Houston.

No suspects have yet to be named, but police tell KTRK-TV that they believe this is an inside job.

“They know when the copper is being delivered,” Lauren Stockholm, spokeswoman for the Sugar Land Police Department, told KTRK. “They know when it’s going to be there when workers are not going to be there.”

The $36 million facility is still scheduled to open April 26 to kick off the Sugar Land Skeeters’ inaugural season.
