FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Fargo police say burglars stole $100,000 worth of copper from a business over the weekend.

The Forum newspaper reports (http://bit.ly/s9oBk5 ) that Dakota Electric Construction Co. reported the theft of 52 large spools of copper, which can bring high prices when sold for scrap metal.
