Give him a break. He was building an ethanol refinery to combat the rising gas prices.

Better have one on your car too. I've heard that thieves in Florence are ripping out the catalytic converters on late model cars for the platinum.

Hey. just looked at the photo.....he looks like the same Bozo they had on another thread on here who got busted for selling meth, third time in a row. Maybe he DOES have connections.

Without that copper they are screwed, maybe they can sell wrapping paper early this year to raise funds for building materials.

Why not punish the metal recycler? They had to know the stuff was stolen. When the market dries up, the thefts will dry up.

I know a garage owner who was storing 44 cars near Chapin. He went to get a part off one and found all the converters stolen.

what i dont get is why is this crime only 3rd degre burglary? he's stealing not only from the school, but the state. Why cant this be a drug related offense?

and I agree with an earlier post that the recycle sites that accept the coppoer wire and such should have some liability in supporting this behavior.

He's just doing his job, he's a welfare rat stealing from the people.

What's the differnce between a welfare queen and this man?

THE PAPER WORK and a STAMP OF APPROVAL FROM A SOCIAL WORKER making it legal for her to take a ton of free money from the tax payers?

I see nothing wrong with this guys ambition.
