Three men are in custody, accused of stealing thousands of dollars worth of copper wiring from supply companies around the Houston-area. Police in Conroe say they caught the burglars breaking into a supply warehouse there this week. They say the men were removing coils and wire bundles valued at $14,000.

Police say the men are linked to at least three other burglaries.
