On Wednesday afternoon, the Emery County Sheriff’s Office (ECSO) announced that a large amount of pipe has been stolen from a well site.
The site, located in Cottonwood Canyon, is believed to have been invaded between June 18 and July 8. The ECSO explained that the pipe is 2 3/8″ diameter. Each piece of pipe is 31-feet long.
A total of 178 pieces of pipe are currently missing from the well site. While the sheriff’s office did acknowledge that a significant amount of time has passed since the pipe initially went missing, personnel are urging any that may have been in the canyon and noticed anything suspicious to reach out.
