Iowan gets 37 months for role in copper theft ring


A man who stole copper off of irrigation systems from Sioux City to St. Joseph, Missouri has been sentenced to more than three years in prison.

32-year-old Jonathan Campbell of Council Bluffs pleaded guilty to federal charges of conspiracy to commit interstate transport of stolen property.

Campbell stole copper control cables from farms in 2009 and 2010 and sold it to an Omaha salvage yard on at least 73 occasions.

Campbell was also ordered to pay more than $174,000 in restitution.

Two other Council Bluffs men have already been sentenced in the thefts.
