LEBANON, Tenn. (AP) -- More than $50,000 worth of copper wiring has been stolen from the Wilson County Fair.
Midway chairman David Hale says someone cut into a trailer where the cable had been stored.
The cables are used to power rides and booths.
Fair officials say they will replace the cables before the fair opens in August, but they won't have the money to make some needed improvements to the fair.
Hale says the thieves "stole from a group of volunteers that are here putting in their time to entertain this community."
Officials plan to increase security around the fair.
