This is a really bad situation NOT only in Gettysburg, BUT all over the country. YOU would think that these scrap yards would recognize that these are stolen pipes and refuse payment. THIS IS WHERE IT SHOULD STOP..AT THE JUNK YARD! Then maybe, the thieves would just FREAKIN' STOP!!

Some of the SALVAGE yards in this area require some type of ID when you sell large quantities of copper construction materials. Then they can provide the police with a list of people who sold large quantities of these materials.

Maybe that should be a practice for all of them?
