Man apparently electrocuted while trying to steal copper wire
About 9:10 p.m., Southern California Edison employees located a circuit breaker that had been tripped in the 7400 block of Center Avenue, causing a small power outage, police Lt. Russell Reinhart said. A man's body was found beside the circuit breaker.
“It appears the man was trying to steal copper wire from the business and electrocuted himself, and that’s what caused his death,” Reinhart said.
The man has not been identified and his age has not been released. Power has been restored to the area, Reinhart told OC Now.
