GREENVILLE — Greenville police are investigating the theft of more than 40 manhole covers.

Police Chief Freddie Cannon tells the Delta Democrat Times that the covers have been removed from all over the city but the southside of Greenville was hit the hardest.

The covers cost $400 each to replace.

The covers can weigh from 50 to 100 pounds.

Cannon says he’s not certain how many people are involved in the thefts.
