As a Los Angeles homeowner, you need to be constantly on alert. Not only do you have to make sure your plumbing, AC, electrical systems and appliances are all working properly but you have to maintain a level of security. This doesn’t mean staying on 24 hour watch but just taking common sense precautions when it comes to locking your doors and windows. Hopefully, you live in a community where the neighbors watch out for each other. This approach was helpful to the police recently when they arrested a Los Angeles man suspected of stealing thousands of dollars of scrap metal from area businesses.
What happened was that this suspect was driving around in his pickup truck asking folks if they had any scrap metal. Apparently what he was really doing was scouting potential spots for theft. One such spot was a business that reported an overnight break-in. What went missing were ten spools of wire and industrial grade drilling equipment that was valued at over $24,000. Neighbors told police about the suspicious character looking for scrap metal and provided them with a description of his truck. Later, that same vehicle was spotted and when searched the stolen items were found. It’s a case right out of “Dragnet!”
All of this points out the need to get rid of any scrap metal or other junk you might have around your property. By keeping this stuff piled up outdoors you’re basically telling a would-be thief that you don’t care what’s going on. At the very least it shows you’re taking your eye off the ball and opening yourself up to a potential crime. This is not to say that every pick-up piled with junk you see driving around town is up to no good. On the other hand, if a truck like that drives by your home several times to see a pile of scrap metal just sitting there it might prove to be too tempting of a target. There is a better way and that’s hiring a crew of professional junk haulers like Junk King Los Angeles to get rid of your scrap metal or other junk.
