I worked in the construction field for many years, and I can't recall the number of times I've walked on to jobs sites, only to find new construction homes stripped of copper pipe and wire.

If there's a spike in scrap metal prices, it seems to coincide with a spike in theft of metal supplies as well... Who woulda thunk it?

Then there was the one time (in Greensboro NC) that two thieves who hadn't realized the house they were cannibalizing had been hooked up to temp power that very day... Suprise, surprise! The Police didn't have much trouble finding those guys.
Some days, it's just not worth chewing through the restraints...
