For many thieves copper has become their new gold. Because copper prices are trading at record levels, some local San Antonio thieves have decided they should be stealing pipes and wiring for a quick cash reward. As a result there have been over eight major thefts of copper and other scrap metal reported by the Kendall County Sheriff’s office.
“Generally we have cases of copper theft but it’s generally on a small scale, these have been large scale thefts,” said Lt. Shad Prichard an investigator with the Kendall County Sheriff’s office. “What we’re seeing this year is it has increased significantly from last year.”
These same criminals are becoming extremely brazen in their attempts to steal copper and other scrap metal. In one incident, a would-be thief applied for a job at a construction site only to return the next day to try and steal some of that scrap metal material. He was chased off by other workers but it just goes to show how desperate these criminals are to score scrap metal. This is why it’s so important for you to get rid of any scrap metal you might have around your property before some thief decides to make you his next target.
Scrap metal is pretty much anything that is piled up outside a home or garage that is made of steel, iron, copper or aluminum. You might not think there is much value in something like aluminum siding scraps or an old tub and you probably be right. But that’s not going to stop some thief from snooping around hoping they can make a score. Even things like old car parts or a lawnmower could be considered scrap metal.
