Frick’in Tweakers!!!! I hate tweakers….
And the thing about this is this: it is metal theft. What happena is the suspect steals the copper, and then sell the metal to a recycling center.
Thia is the same process, basically, as when catalytic converters are stolen from below cars.
The major problwm arises from a lack of state law. You see, in my humble opinion, if there was a state law in effect requiring recycling centers to obtain identification at the time of weighing the commodity, the bad guys would hqve to jump through a major hoop.
It wouldnt solve the problem completely, but it sure wpuld give the cops a little more juice to catch the bad guys.
