-What are the specifics of this plastic wrap (I mean, we're not talking Saran-Wrap here)?
-Who makes it?
-What is the minimum that can be bought? The weight? The height of the role? Over the past year who bough a small amount of this? ("Small amount" Commerically speaking, of course)
- and so on.
The article says kitchen variety plastic wrap. Wrap enough of that stuff together and you've got a pretty effective barrier. Things like that stack up quick, remember 1 sting is nothing, a whole bunch of strings is a baseball.
Plastic wrap- Saran wrap- and the like comes in rolls of 200+ feet at the local grocery store. Some of the Restaurant supply stores sell larger rolls. Even if you take 3 or 4 rolls to run it from one side of the street to the other, it will stick to itself. I have used Saran wrap to wrap unusual shaped items when I have moved. Wrapped dining room chairs to protect the backs and seats. Wrapped the silverware dividers in the kitchen drawers and in my desk drawers. Tape with wide tape. Get to other end, cut with sissors, and put back into desk, etc. No muss, no fuss, and nothing spilled out. Cheap and easy, also.
No matter what, I feel it is attempted murder. Not funny.
This stuff is ubiquitous. You'll find it in most warehouses. It's used to wrap loaded pallets to insure stability during shipping
Who ever is responsible should be jailed if proven.
This is not a prank, it is a crime.
