Default Who steals these???

25 catch basin grates have been stolen from the city of Grand Rapids
http://www.wzzm13.com/news/article/1...n-Grand-Rapids
Who steals these and how do they off them as scrap?
Don't these have the city's name cast into them?

You hit them with a sledge to break the dirt seal and lift them out. No problem. Must be taking them elsewhere for turn in.

Wouldn't the scrap yard be obligated to notify the city/authorities when someone tries to turn them in as scrap?

They bust them into small chunks and mix them with other scrap.

Ah, I see.
I sure would hate to hit the hole in the road left behind by a missing one.

That's for all of them, and then you have to figure it takes a city crew of around 10 workers and 5 supervisors to replace one them.

Maybe the same people who were stealing manhole covers at GM TC a few years ago. We were given caution notices that we could fall in the holes in the mornings since the covers were disappearing during the nights.
