A review of the local Albany crime blotter will find there are many incidents of scrap metal thievery. A few weeks back a couple was caught in the act of stealing scrap metal from a home. The whooping amount of value attached to the metal? $48. Is that really worth going to jail for? Apparently so for those two crooks. Another theft was reported from the Superior Iron company. That makes more sense but it’s still a lot of work and risk for very little return. All of this crime blotter news should have you thinking about your own scrap metal you’ve got laying around your yard. Are you creating a tempting treat for a would-be criminal?
Keep in mind that scrap metal is any kind of metal that can be melted down. If you sell scrap metal you’re looking to create as much volume as you can. That’s why thieves will steal anything metallic that isn’t nailed down. This includes bikes, appliances or auto parts. An abandoned home like those that have been foreclosed upon is like a shopping mall for scrap metal thieves. They’ve got free reign to break in and ripe out the pipes.
