A Wichita resident called police after looking out his window Thursday afternoon and seeing three people pushing a shopping cart filled with copper wiring and pipes in the 2800 block of South Hillside.

Lt. Doug Nolte praised the man for alerting police, calling his report “an excellent example” of police receiving cooperation from the public.

Police arrested a 43-year-old man, a 42-year-old man and a 34-year-old woman on suspicion of burglary, theft and criminal destruction of property.
