Authorities are investigating a business burglary in north Salina.

Police Captain Paul Forrester tells KSAL News that sometime between August 25 and August 27, someone entered a Morton building in the 1100 block of N. 12th Street and removed numerous sets of copper wire made for air conditioners.

Owners of Mid-Kansas Homes and Movers told investigators that a Bostitch air compressor was also stolen.
