nativio289, I'm vary aware of the painful cost to owners for the criminals crimes of pennies. My point is that without sever punishment, they have no reason to stop the practice. Our judges give them a slap on the wrist while the home/business owner is left holding the bag. City counsel has much bigger issues that need addressed. Maybe if they did a little something to really improve the city there wouldn't be so many so desperate. Then other peoples property wouldn't be such an easy target. Take anything to Niles Scrap and Iron you are forced to ID. Not many manholes, siding from houses or statues in their yard.

Well, Billdog, the problem is that yes, when a couple of the locals steal copper from, say, the roof of a family run restaurant/banquet hall in Warren, it is indeed a "few dollars" in their pocket for the scrap.

But it costs the victim thousands of dollars to fix and replace what the locals cut open and stole.

Quite simply put Mr. Ed. It appears counsel in the city of Warren has far more important issues to address. How about the deplorable conditions of the city itself? Ramped crime; poverty; abandoned homes, business, and buildings; etc... yet this man is worried about a few dollars worth of alloy steal. How about getting your judges to punish the POS when caught? Legitiment scrap dealers ask for ID when this stuff is brought in.
