Sewer Grates Vanish in Corbin

Jul 27, 2011

Authorities are on the lookout for those responsible for a recent epidemic of storm-drain and sewer grate thefts going on in Corbin. In the past three weeks, 16 different sized grates, valued at more than $3,000, have been removed from their matching drains, city officials said. "This has become a bad problem," Corbin Mayor Willard McBurney said. "This could cause someone to wreck, bust a tire or tear the whole front end off your car."
