Thieves left the Burke High baseball field in the dark last month when they stole an estimated $7,000 in copper wiring from three outfield light poles.
Burke High baseball coach Scott Hodges reported the theft to the Omaha Police Department on Oct. 28. That day, a parent noticed damage to the light poles in left, right and center fields near the school at 12200 Burke Blvd., Hodges told police.
