Two tons of stolen copper wire used for traffic signal networks were found concealed during a police operation in a Roma camp in Zevgolatio, Corinth prefecture, on Tuesday, and three people were arrested.

A police investigation turned up that the copper wire belonged to the Proastiakos urban railway.

Three people were arrested and will be brought before a Corinth prosecutor.

The copper was seized and removed to the Corinth security police facilities until it is turned over to its rightful owner.
