A friend told me that on the road where he lives a dozen or so (rural) homes have had their roadside metal mailboxes stolen!

These days we have to chain down not only our bikes, but ladders, shovels and anything else made of metal to avoid their theft. These guys are even going under cars and taking catalytic converters...which they can get off your car in 30 seconds!

At least now salvage yards are taking more information and requiring ID for recycling...it may not stop 'em but it should slow 'em down.

When I hear dogs barking in my neighborhood, I wonder who's getting hit now?

HA HA a catalytic converter fetches $75.00 at the junk yard. Better watch out where you park your car.

It's so sad that the decent hard-working people in this country have to feel constant fear and threat because of the extent to which these low-life theives will go.
