A copper theft occurred at Holy Spirit Parish School at the 3900 block of West Land Park Drive.
Sacramento Police Sgt. Andrew Pettit said the investigation is ongoing, but said a "substantial" amount of copper was stolen. He said copper thefts are common, but they tend to come in waves, especially during off-school times like spring break, winter break and summer break.
"This might be the beginning of the trend," he said.
Pettit said the people in charge of investigating the case are seeking video footage to determine suspects.
