Approximately $2,000 worth of copper wire was stolen from the PG&E Testing Facility on Crow Canyon Road last week, according to police reports.
Kevin Lundberg, 29, a Castro Valley resident, was arrested for grand theft and possession of stolen property on Monday, July 12. Lt. Jeff Moule said Lundberg was most likely planning to scrap or recycle the material for money.
A witness saw Lundberg inside the facility's yard, which is behind its geodesic dome and called police. Moule said there appears to have been others involved in the theft that haven't been captured.
Lundberg was booked at the Martinez Detention Facility and was released on $35,000 bail. Danville police are currently waiting to hear from the district attorney about the status of the case.
