Erica Bailey said her new renters on Tomahawk Drive complained of a leak and low water pressure.

She was surprised since the water had been fine a couple of weeks earlier.

A plumber checked out the problem and found that all the copper piping had been stolen.

To fix the problem will cost $7,000-$10,000.
