JOHOR BARU: As prices for metal soar, utility companies have been hit hard with thieves stealing the material worth over RM74mil in the past four years.
At the top of the list of those affected is TM Bhd, with losses amounting to RM10.6mil last year, followed by Indah Water Konsortium (RM6.3mil) and Tenaga Nasional Bhd (RM5mil).
A TM source said thieves did not just steal copper cables.
“They have even carted away entire metal telephone poles,” the source said, adding that TM would have lost between RM30mil and RM40mil in the last four years.
The source said most thefts took place in remote areas, including in jungles and estates.
