storm water grates, can any one say metal? Metal thieves have been out stealing metal for years. Freddy what have you done? Yep Freddy has stolen from me and others in the last year. Plus there seems to be a number of other people that make a living off stealing metals from people. You see them out and about in pick up trucks searching people trash to collect metals. It is illegal to look through another's trash bins without permission and it is called petty thief when someone removes it. Why do the police allow this practice, it is because no one complains about the trash, but let a grill or a ladder disappear and then it is a crime. Go Figure. Taking metal from someone's trash seems like no crime, but they are stealing from the county that recycles that metal.
