Last year, the cemetery where some of my relatives are buried had about half the bronze flower urns stolen. A local metal recycler tipped off the police when someone brought them in to sell as scrap.

Difference between a power boater and a sailor out on the water: A power boater is going some place special, a sailor is already there.

Low lifes are probably selling the stuff for scrap at a junkyard. It happens quite often on construction sites

It happens everywhere, not just construction sites. A 2-ton propeller was stolen last year from the Tiburon Yacht Club. This thing was 10 feet in diameter!

The price of metals has gone through the roof in the last couple of years, so scap meteal is big business now. The scrap dealers need to be held accountable for buying stolen goods.

We lost about 3500.00 worth of brass watter line fittings out of our yard last winter...I called all the surrounding scrap dealers..only one would talk to me and she was Korean and couldn t understand me ( or did a good job of pretending not to understand )..

We've had people get electrocuted in Detroit trying to steal copper wire. Whole houses are getting stripped of all copper.

So you pull a couple of the local bell buoys, and replace them with falsies on the conning towers of nuclear submarines. When someone pulls the bell...blow the ballast!

Betcha could sell tickets to that show on pay per view.[g]
