Default :RANT: Frickin Thieves

So about 1 am the dog jumps off the bed and starts barking, I don't think much of it as he does this from time to time.

Took him outside this morning and found the lid of my grill missing. WTF? Nothing else was missing just the lid.

f'n thieves!

Yeah, its an 12 yr old Kenmore. It WAS a great grill. I can't imagine they would get more than 5 bucks as scrap.

Look for the one and only person who "didn't" get hit. Then check their garage.

Better go down to the local scrap yard and clue them in.

The dog barking probably scared the crooks off. I bet they come back for the grill tonight or sometime this week.

you would be suprised last week i was at the scrap yard and say a guy getting arested because he was stealing from the roseville dpw and they followed him to the dump
he ended up getting 11 bucks for what he stole that day but he didnt make it back to his car to spend it
it was strange pulling in there and seeing 3 dpw cars and 7 or 8 rosevill cops there

on occasion ive seen people scrap all kinds of things they probly stole
one day there was a guy with about 15-20 un opened boxes of coiladted fastner roofing nail coils (for the air roofing nailers)
probly could have gotten 50 times what he got scraping them than if he took them back to home depot

There was a story on the news about a guy who got electrocuted while stealing copper.
They were stealing manhole covers at the Tech Center last year. That's a surprise in the a.m. when there's gaping holes in the roads.
