Cable Identification

Stolen electrical cables are routinely burnt
to get rid of insulation and to effectively destroy all existing identification measures.
Over 80% of caught cable thieves are repeat offenders.

Of those caught, only 7% are convicted – the other 93% have to be realeased – and are free to carry on stealing cables.


Stolen cable copper is also routinely granulated to destroy the possibility of owner identification and effectively prevent conviction


Scrap metal buyers will refuse to take the chance to purchase marked copper and risk certain conviction.
This will strike a devastating blow to the illegal copper market.
