    Possible copper thieves abandon injured buddy at Taconite Harbor (MN)

    A group of thieves apparently tried to steal some copper wiring from a Taconite Harbor industrial site last month when something went amiss.

    One of the men fell to a concrete floor and was unable to get up, authorities said. His buddies covered him with a jacket and called 911 — but apparently not until they got to Duluth, about 85 miles away and out of the jurisdiction of Cook County law enforcement authorities.

    Cook County Sheriff Mark Falk said Cook County ambulance and police received a call at 2:30 a.m. March 17 that a man was injured at Taconite Harbor. The call came from Lake County, which was relaying a message from St. Louis County.

    When police and paramedics arrived, they found a man who had apparently fallen 6 to 8 feet to a concrete floor. Falk said it appeared the man had fractured vertebrae. He was taken to St. Mary’s Medical Center in Duluth.

    Falk said it appeared there had been an attempt to steal copper wiring, because cables had been tampered with. He speculated that when the man fell, his friends left him with a jacket and fled, apparently waiting until they reached Duluth — or somewhere in St. Louis County — before calling 911.

    Falk said a warrant was out for the injured man in Carlton County, but no charges have been filed in Cook County. He declined to release the man’s name. Cook County police are continuing to investigate in hopes of learning the names of others who may have been involved.

    Taconite Harbor is on state Highway 61 near Schroeder in Cook County.

    This shows what kind of friends you really have when you hang out with thieves.

    IMHO, no treatment until he gives up his friends.
