    City Light leader fell for ‘Indian’ copper con

    Last year, two men claiming to be members of the Cherokee Nation who had traveled from Oklahoma came to Seattle with a simple goal: score some scrap copper.
    Dressed in beads and fringed suede, with one wearing a cap that said “Native,†they headed to the offices of Seattle City Light, where they chanced upon its superintendent, Jorge Carrasco, in the lobby. They told him they ran a nonprofit that taught disabled children how to make jewelry and needed some copper wire.
    Minutes after meeting them, Carrasco authorized the men to be given some scrap.
    But the two were actually con men.
