My incident happened 2 years ago and I know copper theft has increased drastically since then. So it is good to hear the scrapyard is doing the right thing. Or it could be the publicity made them do the right thing.

On the other hand, Rick, of "Pawn Stars or shop or whatever" A guy came in with a Russian Police hat, Rick really liked it so he asked, "Where did you get it"? The guy had stolen it out of a police car while being a tourist in Moscow. Rick just told him, "Not interested in stolen property, no matter where you stole it".

We’ve been seeing a large number of metal thefts around here as well.

I enjoy the Pawn shop shows. Most seem to be very respectable in their dealings.

The Pawn Stars episode on last night had a guy who had some matches that featured a strike strip on the Hitler cartoon that you used to light the matches. The Pawnbroker said: “I don’t deal in Nazi merchandise”. But it was a WWII item that made fun of Hitler.
