More Scrap Thieves

Posted: September 12, 2014 in Uncategorized

We’ve written several blogs about the unfortunate act of stealing scrap metal in order to make a profit at local (and even non-local) scrap yards.  It appears as though the two men in the article have reached an all time low (or high) when trying their best to steal copper from a church in Delaware.  …Yes, you read that correctly: These two men were stealing scrap from a CHURCH!

Thankfully, the Lord does have a tendency to work in mysterious ways (that) and the two burglars appeared to lack anything higher than a Kindergarten education. The culprits were arrested shortly after the police officers found them hiding in the church’s air ducts.

Don’t believe us?  Check out the article here:
