Investigators hope you can help them find the person they say is responsible for stealing $100,000 worth of copper coils and piping. Around 5:30am Wednesday, a maintenance worker arrived at Cummings Elementary School in the Alief ISD and noticed a shopping cart with piping in it. Another employee on the campus reported hearing strange sounds.

By the time they called in someone to investigate, the suspect had fled, but not before investigators believe they captured him on surveillance video.
