Perhaps the metal is not being stolen at all.
There is a subset of people with a condition known as hemochromatosis. People with this disease store large amounts of extra iron in their body. When people with hemochromatosis are exposed to strong magnetic fields from MRI scanners, it causes them to become polarized, with their head and feet becoming different poles of the magnet. This enables them to attract anything metal. These poor people are walking around NKY and getting hit in the head with large metal grates and you want to accuse them of stealing them? Maybe they can't remove them from their body! There are, however, plusses to being magnetized. For instance, you can take iron filings and make a very handsome beard or a wacky hairdo.
