I hope that they catch these 'boneheads' and prosecute them to the maximum.

Our history and our heritage are worth so much more. I would not doubt that the metal is already pounded down to a useless blob with enough heat it will be a mass of metal and hard to trace.

I hope that a citizen will turn them in and the Secret Witness will help catch another one.
