Manholes, sewer lids stolen from Bakersfield streets
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — Manhole lids are being stolen across the city.

Police said Friday that they've received 18 reports of stolen catch-basin lids, which are 2-feet square and roughly 10 to 15 pounds. They cover sidewalk storm drains.

Police didn't say how many manhole sewer lids have been stolen, which are 150 to 180 pounds and are found in the middle of the road.

Photos released Friday show two styles of catch basin lids. A manhole sewer lid looks the same as the circular catch-basin lid.

Anyone with information helpful to the investigation is asked to call Detective Pete Cavazos at (661) 326-3561.
