FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Police say thieves broke into a Fargo business over the weekend and stole $50,000 worth of copper wire.

The theft at Fargo Electric Construction was reported at 7 a.m. Monday.

Police say the suspects forced their way into the building, moved the company's trucks out of the way, and used the company's skid steers to load the wire.

Fargo Police Lt. Joel Vettel tells the Forum newspaper it appears the thieves spent a "significant amount of time inside the business."

No arrests have been made. Vettel says the investigation is ongoing.
