Search for a Toyoto, 8 to 10 inch stainless steel chimmney for exhaust, bobbleheads resembling Jesus on dash board, and 20 to 24 inch bass thumpers where rear seat would have been, crooks are wearing hoods with Puerto Rico flags for bandannas, if seen do not stop they are armed and the car will jump on you!!!

Well this is a first that I know of - stealing $$$ from a scrap yard & who in their right mind keeps that kind of cash right there???

What are they going to rob next??

Lately, I'm not surprised at any type of robbery - times are bad, and they are robbing left and right........
I know I wouldn't have the guts to attempt robbery - I'd rather go without my big screen TV........

I say it's someone that has been there before and knows all about whomever owns this scrap yard.......

Yup - inside info. They keep cash on hand to pay people that bring in the scrap metal. If there's 30 tons = 1-1/2 (big) truck loads in a day @$100 per ton (for steel) payment =$3,000 right there. SO it's not out of line. Of course, it just encourages "no records" sales of stolen scrap.

But look at the screen name of the poster above - whay, no "junkyard dog" here to discourage thieves ? Bet that would have stopped it !
